Council of State Affiliates

Networking Together to Bring Positive Change

The National Foster Parent Association's Council of State Affiliates is the Advisory Council to the NFPA's Board of Directors.  The Council (COSA) is represented by leaders of state foster care associations who communicate regularly to identify and address issues affecting the foster care community at the state and national level. The NFPA also relies on its’ state affiliate members to share national foster care related information and news to the families in their respective states.
