Welcome to the website of the Alabama Foster and Adoptive Parent Association (AFAPA), a resource for families involved in foster care, kinship care, and adoption. We want this site to be a source of information and support for all individuals on the foster care and adoption journey throughout the state of Alabama!
April 2, 2020:
AFAPA has reached decision to cancel the Alabama Foster & Adoptive Parent Conference that was scheduled for May 7 to 9, 2020. If you registered your money will be refunded by Shocco Springs. Shocco should be calling participants soon to issue the refund.
Foster parents will still need to have 15 training hour credits to maintain home approval each year. We will post other resources available for training.
