Get to Know our Executive Director, Arnie Eby
Arnie is known as 'Mr. Arnold' to over 130 children in foster care that joined the Eby family over the years; ‘The Monster' in roughly one million (and counting) games of monster tag; and as just 'Arnie' to his friends. He has been married to his wife Donna for 30 years, and together they have been foster parents for over 20 years, including three foster children (ages 5, 7 & 9) through the COVID-19 pandemic. They are the parents to three daughters and three sons, four of which are adopted from the foster care system.
Arnie most recently served as the Executive Director of the Maryland Resource Parent Association (MRPA) and has been involved with MRPA in various capacities since its inception 17 years ago. He is also the past Chair of the Maryland Children’s Justice Act Committee, and serves on multiple other national, state, and local government committees, including as the current Public Policy Chair for the National Foster Parent Association. The NFPA is excited to bring Arnie's leadership and expertise onboard.
Please join us in welcoming Arnold “Arnie” Eby to the National Foster Parent Association!

WALK ME HOME
Walk Me Home.... to the place I belong is the signature fund-raising and awareness event for foster care in America. We know not everyone can be a foster parent, but Walk Me Home is a great way to support the over 437,000 children in foster care.
This year thousands and thousands of walkers will participate in Walk Me Home events across the country, raising funds to support the life changing programs and activities of foster care associations throughout the United States.
Learn more about how to get involved here.
The National Foster Parent Association is a non-profit, volunteer organization established in 1972 as a result of the concerns of several independent groups that felt the country needed a national organization to meet the needs of foster families in the United States.
This mission of the NFPA is to be a respected national voice for foster, kinship, and adoptive families through networking, education, and advocacy.
