FACT was created by the General Assembly in 1986. It is governed by a Board of Trustees, appointed by the Governor. The Virginia Department of Social Services provides staff support and technical assistance to the FACT, and the Commissioner serves as a permanent member of the Board of Trustees.
FACT is primarily funded by direct donations from public and private sources, revenue from the sale of the KIDS FIRST license plates, and voluntary donations on state income tax returns.
Each year, FACT provides funding to support local community programs such as parenting education classes, outreach and counseling services, and emergency shelter and support services.
