Our Mission

Empowering youth and families for life long success

Foster First is a non-profit 501(c)3 Child Placing Agency that provides Behavioral Rehabilitative Services for foster children from the ages of 0-17

Established in 2003, as Community Resource Group, we began providing services to the Yakima and Wenatchee area. In June of 2019, we changed our name to Foster First, still continuing to serve children and families.  Foster First now services Yakima, Kittitas, Chelan, Douglas, Franklin, Benton, Grant, and Klickitat counties. We’ve grown in our continuum of care and we evaluate and help train individuals and couples interested in being foster parents.  Foster First provides CPA-level care and Behavior Rehabilitation Services (BRS), which is a temporary, intensive, wraparound support, and treatment program for children and families.
