The benefit of engaging with NFPA is work of mutuality. Choosing to engage means being willing to share your experiences with others engaged in the same work with the same commitment and compassion for improving the lives of children and families.

Having served in my current role for over fifteen and a half years, I can always rely on the NFPA to keep me informed about foster care policy and practice issues in other states. It is great to have a peer group available to offer information and support!
