Foster Adoptive Parent Association (FAPA)

The National Foster Adoptive 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. Trumbull County Children Services Foster Adoptive Parent Association offers support to foster parents in achieving safety, permanence and well-being for the children and youth in their care.
