Fostering Futures-KFACA

Celebrating 30 Years

Thirty years ago, a group of individuals passionate about foster care in the state of Kentucky had the vision to create a support and advocacy group for foster parents.  Throughout the years, this association has grown to include children in out-of-home care, adoptive, and kinship parents.  We have been instrumental in pursuing rights for foster parents and promoting legislation that include raises for state foster care homes and the Foster Parent Bill of Rights.  We have representatives serving as affiliates on the National Foster Parent Association State Board of Affiliates and the NFPA Strategic Planning Committee.  Our organization is dedicated to the serving the best interest of children in out-of-home care and empowering the families of Kentucky.

Fostering Futures with KFACA

The Kentucky Foster & Adoptive Care Association (KFACA) is excited to re-brand with a new logo that focuses on Fostering Futures.  One of our primary goals for 2018 will be to better advocate and provide connections for Kentucky's youth that are aging out of the foster care system.  It is our desire to provide contacts and resources to enable them a smoother and more successful transition.

Our Mission

The mission of the Kentucky Foster & Adoptive Care Association (KFACA) is to serve as a united voice to effectively advocate and support children in out-of-home care and the families that serve them with the highest integrity.

KFACA Goals

  • To unite as a more effective group to advocate for children who are at risk and for those in out-of-home care.
  • Recommend, encourage, and actively engage in the formulation and changes of policy which will promote action to meet the needs of these children and foster and adoptive parents.
  • Develop training for foster and adoptive parents and agency staff.
  • To increase public awareness of the foster and adoptive care programs and encourage recruitment and retention of foster parents by promoting a positive image of foster and adoptive parents.
