Support Groups

As parents of foster and adopted children, there are challenges that parents have already encountered or may encounter in the future. NFAPA encourages that families build support systems and a plan before families need them to deal with crisis. Support groups are a vital component to the safety net and NFAPA hosts parent groups statewide.

Check out our calendar to find a support group near you!

NFAPA Support Groups

Have you ever thought about attending a support group?  NFAPA offers support groups to foster, adoptive and kinship families!  This is your chance to gain understanding and parenting tips through trainings, discussions, and networking with fellow foster families.  This is a great way to meet other foster/adoptive families in your area!  In-service training is offered at some support groups for those needing credit hours for relicensing.  Up to date information with each support group location will be on our calendar page. Support Groups will be cancelled for inclement weather.  Contact your Resource Family Consultants for more information.
