National Foster Care  Month                       Walk Me Home

NFPA is pleased to introduce Keri Vellis and her book SOMETIMES! Keri is an emergency foster parent and mother of six, three of whom she adopted after fostering. Keri was unable to find appropriate books that helped foster children feel more comfortable with transitioning to a new home, so she wrote the book herself! Illustrator Jin Lehr spent time in foster care as a child, so she understood the need to create pictures that would engage and comfort the reader. Books are available on the website Please use coupon code NFPA and Keri will donate $1 per sale back to NFPA.

Mission To be a respected national voice for foster, kinship and adoptive families through networking, education and advocacy.

Vision:  To embrace our Mission and become a respected source of timely and quality education focused on the needs of the children in our care and to provide technical support to state parent organizations. Our vision is supported through the emphasis that family foster care is an integral component of the child welfare system; therefore our vision includes advocating for outcomes that ensure foster, kinship and adoptive families are recruited, asssessed, trained, and supported with evidence-based or informed best practices and receive timely comprehensive resources so the children in their care are safe, nurtured, and have lasting relationships.

The National Foster Parent Association is a champion for the thousands of families that open their hearts and their homes to the over 400,000 children in out-of-home placement in the US.

NFPA believes in the importance of family-based care for foster children and that every child deserves support and a permanent family.


NFPA is proud to partner with LegalShield as the premier provider of legal and ID protective services.
