The National Voice of Foster Parents

National Foster Parent Association

Supporting foster, adoptive and kinship parents nationally.

The National Foster Parent Association is a champion for the thousands of families that open their heart and their home to the over 400,000 children in out-of-home placement in the US.

NFPA believes in the importance of family-based care for foster children and that every child deserves a permanent family.
