KFAPA is a group of volunteers that are passionate about advocating for foster, adoptive and kinship parents across the state of Kansas. These volunteers have a great understanding of the child welfare system as a whole and know it can be unpredictable and difficult to navigate. They also know how essential it is for foster, adoptive, and kinship families to have a support system alongside them through the process. KFAPA volunteers offer their services so they can be part of that crucial support system and increase retention of foster, adoptive and kinship parents.
KFAPA offers pre-MAPP informational forums for families interested in taking the TIPS-MAPP class. There are also various support groups available that allow families to engage and form relationships with other families going through similar experiences.
KVC and KFAPA work together to make sure foster parents have all the resources and help possible. If you would like to learn more about KFAPA or get involved please visit their website.
