Demographic, licensing and placement information at your fingertips.

Match youth and foster families with real-time data.

  • View, filter, and sort available foster families and waiting youth in one centralized database.
  • Narrow down potential placements by special needs, licensing, preferences, and more.
  • Contact available foster families with just a few clicks.
  • See every placement and waiting youth with real-time SAM reporting.

Create reports to see licensing, capacity and demographic information on families and compare it against youth waiting for placements and their needs. Or build a report to see current placements, inquiring families, outstanding education requirements, and more. Any information you need can be pulled into a report for real-time insight and shared with others.

One of our social workers attended a meeting with County workers and - when the group discussion needed supporting data - she pulled out her phone and accessed the information from SAM. Other members of the group were amazed by the real time data and reported that they were jealous of the speedy access!

Our Treatment Foster Care agency was operating with a 10+ year old database limited to a few administrative employees. We needed a database that could meet the needs of our growing agency.

Our employees have embraced SAM and truly appreciate the availability of real time information. The tools are easy to use, robust, and have become staples of our daily life. We strongly recommend SAM!

Foster to Adopt

If your agency works to pair waiting foster youth with adoptive families, you can build your program in SAM to automatically turn a foster care record into an adoptive record, or build special outreach initiative such as Heart Galleries to help children find their forever homes.


Education & Licensing

Track outstanding education requirements for foster care families as well as licensing. Invite families to attend trainings with events, automatically receive notifications and send emails to families when expiration dates approach


Foster Care Treatment

Track medical and mental health needs of your youth in our secure database to pair them with suitable families and professionals. Enter or import therapy session notes, medication, and incidents in a centralized spot for team members to see.


Care Payments

SAM comes ready with a built-in foster payment calculator and scheduling tool that can be customized depending on your state's regulations. Track payments, administrative fees, respite credits, and more.
