Education & Youth Development
The South Florida Foster & Adoptive Parent Association provides safe and healing environments for children in foster care, one home at a time. We exist to achieve triumphant outcomes for children in the system of care, through the education, support and empowerment of those who care for them. Our vision is to see all children thrive. We envision a system of care in which each foster child has the capacity to not only overcome their trauma, but to flourish. We believe that society underestimates the significant and permanent healing effect of a child being embraced by the safe & loving arms of a parent who is skilled in dealing with children exposed to abuse and neglect. We believe that not only does each child have the right to a safe and loving home, but it is our responsibility as a community to ensure that all children find such a home.
