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.
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.
Annual Membership meeting
We are holding the annual membership meeting LIVE on our social media platforms and website. The meeting is scheduled for Thursday, September 24, 2020, at 6:30 pm CDT.
This annual meeting allows the NFPA Board of Directors and staff to showcase our accomplishments and our financial status in 2019. This is a tremendous opportunity to learn about the very exciting endeavors of the NFPA, as well as to get information regarding our progress on our strategic planning process.
Time will also be devoted to members to submit questions during the meeting. We want to hear from you!
