You’re Not In It Alone. We’re Here To Help!
As a foster parent in Jackson County, you play an incredibly important role in the lives of foster children in our community. The Jackson County Foster Parent Association (JCFPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people like you who give of their time, energy, and resources to provide a home for these vulnerable children.
When you join JCFPA, we’ll put you in touch with an entire community of people who understand what it takes to be a foster parent. Every month, we host a meeting that allows foster parents to connect, share experiences, and learn from one another. These meetings also provide foster parents with opportunities for ongoing training and educational support.
In addition to connecting you with people who care, we provide invaluable practical support through an exchange warehouse that makes clothes, toys, baby items, and even some furniture available to foster families. We also provide birthday gifts, holiday gifts, school supplies, and social activities throughout the year. Not only will you get a chance to meet other foster parents, but your foster children will have the opportunity to meet and interact with other children who know what it’s like to be in the foster system.
The Association also advocates for the special issues and needs of foster families at the local and state levels, helping to ensure you get the long-term support you need to succeed.
Thank you for everything you do! We know that foster parenting can be an incredibly rewarding experience. We also know that it is extremely challenging at times. JCFPA is here to provide you with the resources and support you need to make every day a successful day as a foster parent.
