ABOUT THE FOSTER, ADOPTIVE, KINSHIP PARENT ASSOCIATION
The Foster Adoptive Kinship Parent Association of Fresno County was established in 2003 by a group of Foster Parents in Fresno who met around a kitchen table and came up with the idea to create a support system for Foster Parents, relatives and adoptive parents in the Fresno Area.
Our Main focus is to address issues of Foster Parents, guardianship, and adoptive parent, also kinship placements that now includes over 55% of all children in out-of-home placements in California.
If you are now a Foster Parent, Relative, Adoptive Parent or ally and would like to join our association we would welcome your participation. The cost to join is $40 per person and $60 per couple to join the chapter State Association and you will then receive our newsletter with information on current issues and events.
