Let Your Life Be An Inspiration
The Alameda County Foster Parent Association is a Chapter of California State Foster Parent Association. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering, supporting, educating and advocating for licensed foster parents, relative and non-relative caregivers and adoptive families throughout Alameda County.
Our Mission is to promote consistent, safe, quality care for the well-being of all foster children by providing support and advocacy to foster and adoptive families, relative and non-relative caregivers.
If you are a foster or adoptive parent or relative caregiver in Alameda County, consider joining the ACFPA. We are here to support you through your journey.

Drawing will be held on June 25, 2021 during the Virtual Resource Family Appreciation Night.
Grand Opening of our Livermore Clothes Closet!
We are so excited to announce the opening of our second Clothes Closet on May 1, 2021. Our new Clothes Closet is located in the heart of the Livermore Valley, making it especially convenient and accessible for our members who live in the Tri-Valley area to schedule appointments to pick up clothes and other personal items for their new placements.
This new venture would not have been possible without our incredibly generous partners, Eric and Scarlett Payne, who converted their warehouse & store front offices, fitted them out and donated their use to the ACFPA for the sole purpose of establishing a new and larger Clothes Closet in Livermore.
Are you done building your family through adoption? There is still a lot we can offer you through the ACFPA.
