DCF Social Media

DCF has several online locations to serve you better.  Take a moment to check out some of our links below. 
Please feel free to contact us should you have any suggestions as to how we can improve our online media presence and services. 
This is DCF's main website.  The Department of Children and Families operates four (4) facilities, including the Albert J. Solnit Children's Psychiatric Center - North Campus in East Windsor and the South Campus in Middletown, the Connecticut Juvenile Training School, and the Wilderness School.  The Department also consists of a Central Office and 14 Area Offices that are organized into five regions.  At any point in time, the Department serves approximately 36,000 children and 16,000 families across its programs and mandate areas each year. 
This is DCF's Foster and Adoption website.   Beyond question, foster and adoptive parents have complex roles caring for children with often complicated lives. Parents who adopt children or provide foster care say it's the most fulfilling and important thing they've ever done.  As a foster or adoptive parent, you'll have the chance to make a REAL difference -- to do something that will have lasting importance.
Connecticut’s Family Day was established by state law in 1997 (Public Act 97-288). Family Day shall be observed every year during the month of September with activities to be held at the State Capitol and elsewhere. The theme of Connecticut’s Family Day, "Valuing Connecticut’s Families…It’s Everybody’s Business" remains the same so that we continue to reinforce the message that families are Connecticut’s greatest resource and that all sectors of Connecticut’s society have the privilege and obligation to honor them.

The Safe Harbor Project: is a collaboration between the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and True Colors, Inc. This initiative was created by the Commissioner of DCF in September 2001 to educate against homophobia, gender bias and racism while working to create a world where youth, adults and families of all sexual orientations and gender identities are valued and affirmed, and to implement affirming and unbiased, culturally competent, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning & Intersex (LGBTQI) service trainings for foster and adoptive parents, social workers, child care and community providers surrounding the issues and problems specific to youth and families with inherent sexuality issues.
