Who We Are

On April 1, 1997 Golden State Family Services (GSFS) opened as a 501(c)3 Foster Family Agency in Visalia, headed by Micki Prins.

Throughout the years of operation in the Central Valley, Golden State Family Services has established themselves as a reliable agency dedicated to providing quality services to children in need. GSFS has foster and adoptive homes throughout the Central Valley. We have offices in Tulare and Fresno and serve multiple counties within the state of California.

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff includes: Program Directors and other managerial staff, Social Workers, Foster Parent Recruiters, and Support Staff. Our team works very hard to ensure Golden State Family Services is providing children and foster parents with the finest quality services.

Some of the services provided to foster parents and foster children by our organization are: case management services, Intensive Treatment Foster Care (ITFC), Adoption services, monthly training, emancipation assistance, independent living skills programs, and self-esteem building programs.
