50% of foster parents quit within the first year. We’re here to change that number.

About us.

Our Mission

The Carroll County Foster Parent Association seeks to empower and retain foster, adoptive, and kinship parents and those interested in the foster care system through developmental training, tangible support, and relational opportunities.

Our Vision

To create a community of connected, informed, and well-supported caregivers who are committed to child welfare and advocacy within the foster care system.

Our Values

Connection - Education - Compassion - Inclusion - Resilience

What we do.

Developmental Training.

CCFPA holds bimonthly association meetings for foster, adoptive, and kinship parents and those interested in the foster system. Additionally, we provide occasional training classes on topics relevant to  foster care and adoption. All meetings and trainings qualify for required training hours for foster families.

Tangible Support.

CCFPA partners with several local organizations to provide foster parents with clothing, shoes, furniture, diapers, formula, and more. Special funding is also allotted for foster parents for needs not otherwise reimbursed by DFCS.

Relational Opportunities.

CCFPA offers support groups, family-focused events, parents night out, and a private Facebook group to allow foster parents to connect and grow with each other.

Our Leadership.

Our Board of Directors is made up of active, experienced foster parents who are committed to serving the children in their homes as well as fellow foster parents.
