Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York

 

The Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York unites foster, adoptive and kinship care families, giving them a voice and providing support, information and advocacy.

 

By fostering communication and collaboration between families, agencies and concerned citizens, we seek to ensure the stability, well-being and permanency of all children touched by the child welfare system.

 

Founded in 1975, the Coalition unites adoptive and foster parent groups, concerned agencies and individuals throughout the Empire State. We represent the families’ viewpoint and work to improve and expand the services available to children and families.

 

~Our Goals~

 

Educate and support foster, kinship and adoptive parents and the professionals who serve them through information-sharing, services, peer support and referral.


Improve services available to children and families


Increase citizen involvement in local service planning and delivery


Educate leaders and stakeholders about the realities, challenges and rewards of foster, kinship and adoptive parenting


Advocate for greater support of foster, kinship and adoptive families by federal, state and local agencies

 

~Our Vision~

 

That no foster, adoptive or kinship care family in New York State will feel alone or unsupported and that all such families will have the tools, support and community they need to nurture their children and be role models for others.
