Mission: To be a respected national voice for foster, kinship and adoptive families through networking, education and advocacy.
Vision: To embrace our Mission and become a respected source of timely and quality education focused on the needs of the children in our care and to provide technical support to state parent organizations. Our vision is supported through the emphasis that family foster care is an integral component of the child welfare system; therefore our vision includes advocating for outcomes that ensure foster, kinship and adoptive families are recruited, asssessed, trained, and supported with evidence-based or informed best practices and receive timely comprehensive resources so the children in their care are safe, nurtured, and have lasting relationships
The National Foster Parent Association is a champion for the thousands of families that open their hearts and their homes 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 support and a permanent family.
