NFPA has an important mission to support the care givers of our nation's most vulnerable children and youth. What can you do?
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.

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.
The National Foster Parent Association is excited to announce our 50th Education Conference, FORWARD, will be hosted virtually this year.
Thank You, Foster Parents
May 2021 once again has been proclaimed by the President as National Foster Care Month, a tradition that dates back to 1988 with the first Presidential proclamation. These statements of recognition provide an opportunity to acknowledge the essential role of foster families in our country’s service to children and parents who cannot safely stay together.
This year, the National Foster Parent Association is requesting that public and private child welfare agencies and organizations nationwide go a step further by proclaiming National Family Foster Care Month. Focusing on a family perspective recognizes how essential it is to consider the strengths and needs of every member of a foster family.
