Membership in the ACFPA is open to Resource Families (relatives or Foster Parents) who are actively caring for foster and/or adopted children in their homes. Since the ACFPA is a Chapter under the California Foster Parent Association (CSFPA), by becoming a member of ACFPA, you will also become a member of CSFPA and can take advantage of the offerings provided by both organizations.

Benefits of Membership

  • Free monthly support meetings and continuing education programs needed for your Resource Family Approval (RFA) licensure.
  • Opportunity to network with other Resource Families to share experiences, receive and provide guidance and support.
  • A forum to discuss relevant topics such as liability insurance, respite care, working with the Department of Children and Family Services and to learn about new legislation and regulations impacting Resource Families.
