an award-winning, innovative – yet intuitively old-fashioned – model of foster care delivery that intentionally creates community. In every MFM Constellation, six to ten families live in close proximity to a licensed foster care family – a Hub Home – who assists in navigating bureaucracy and offers peer support, social activities and respite care.
The Mockingbird Society provides technical assistance and training to replicate the MFM in local, national and international foster care communities. It's a practical, smart, cost-effective way to create stronger families.
“Being part of the Constellation has added to the enrichment of my foster children by creating relationships between my children and others. I feel the Constellation makes all of us better individuals.” - Mockingbird Family Model Hub Home Parent
