Families Urgent Response System (FURS) is a 24/7 hotline (chat, text, call) for foster youth and/or their care givers (and school personnel too!) who need support of any kind—day or night.

In Sonoma County, FURS offers a trained social worker to respond in person, if needed.

I have attached fliers that, if you are able, to post at your sites or on your web pages.

This is a new California statewide system. The goal is to provide support, reduce crises, and prevent placement failures.

I hope you all are well!

In good health,
