Hickman Homes for Children & Trinity Foster Family Services of the Bay Area is a nonprofit community of people who believe that every child deserves a good home and to grow up in a family with love and respect. We are licensed by the State of California Department of Social Services, as a Group Home and Foster Family Agency. Many of us that are on staff have been or are foster parents, and have worked with children in out of home placements before. The organization of Hickman Homes began in 1981, to facilitate, love, care, supervision and to provide other necessary services for pregnant teenage girls. Through the years we have expanded and modified our mission. However, as of October 1, 2012, we no longer provide group home services. In 1993 we established our Foster Family Agency (FFA), with the goal of matching children in need with a stable foster family. We offer case management, therapeutic services, in-service training; and financial support to our foster parents and children inorder to help make successful placements.
