The Michigan Adult Foster Care Association is a State Registered Association that is Advocates to the Adult Foster Care Community.  We assist all of our Local Adult Foster Care Homes and Assisted Living Centers with FIA, State Approved Contact Hours and CPR / First Aid.
 
There is never no charge, nor membership fees. 
 
MAFCA was founded by a Wound Care Nurse named Denise Atkins.  Denise is aware of the hard work it takes to manage and run Adult Foster Care Homes.  She Started this program to assist with training and services that are cost free.  She experienced herself first hand the "high prices" for training and assistance, and vowed to make a change.
 
MAFCA is now run out of 3 Counties.  Lapeer, Genesee and Oakland.  With the assistance of others, MAFCA can grow.  We are quickly being recognized by discharge planners and social service employees in all the local Hospital's and Nursing Homes as Patient Advocates.  We proudly recommend AFC's. 
 
MAFCA not only assists with State Approved Contact Hours, but also with Citations, Plan of Corrections, Medication assistance, and Marketing needs.
We gladly assist with brochures, webpages, and / or business cards.
