The FPA Foundation is what most people would describe as godsend. This organization was created to help families and most of all our children. In New York City and across our country many families are being ripped apart. There is a high rate of minority cities and neighborhoods where the rate of children being separated from the home and their families. And believe it or not this is the case for some parents that are actually real parents. But because they don’t have much resources or income, they find themselves in situations or make decisions to the best of their capabilities and time to time find themselves still coming up short. Well here is where the FPA Foundation comes in. This organization provides resources, activities, events and much more to help. If you ever find yourself in a situation with ACS, find yourself defending your rights for you child(ren), or just need some support. This organization will be your voice, you hope, and your strength. If you or someone you know is dealing with or find yourself in a situation whether with the law, ACS or bad times please feel free to contact this organization for much willing help.

HI, I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT I HAVE BEEN A MEMBER WITH FPA FOR ABOUT 4 MONTHS & COUNTING. MS. KOOPER & MS. MATTHEWS ARE TWO VERY INTELLIGENT & INVITING WOMEN. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING, WHAT HAS TO BE DONE, WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE & WHAT TASK IT TAKES TO GET IT DONE! I DID NOT HAVE A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE WITH THE AGENCY I WAS AFFILIATED WITH & SOMETHINGS DO NOT WORK OUT THE WAY WE ALL PLAN FOR IT TO BE, BUT THIS IS NOT A PERFECT WORLD NOW IS IT? THESE 2 LADIES ARE WORKING VERY CLOSELY WITH MYSELF & OTHER MEMBERS, AS WELL AS THE YOUTH OF THE NEW YORK CITY FOSTER CARE SYSTEM, TO ACHIEVE JUSTICE FOR WHATS RIGHT FROM WRONG! I WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT I HAVE WALKED THRU THEIR DOORS & IF I WOULDVE KNOWN, THEN, WHAT I KNOW NOW, I WOULDVE BEEN A MEMBER A LONG TIME AGO!

I applaud Ms Hooper and Ms Matthews at the Foster Advocacy Foundation. These 2 woman are knowledgable and diligent in their craft. I admire their drive and determination to help raise awareness about the Foster Care System and the unfortunate events that both foster children as well as foster parents have had to experience. I pray for their continued success!

My name is Mirna. I have been a Kinship Foster Grandparent for the past 7 years. In ONLY 2 months that FPA Foundation have been working with me towards helping me with my Rights as a Kinship Foster Parent, I was served and granted with what I had been struggling to receive for my Grandson and me as his Kinship for the past 5 years. FPA has empowered me, has made me know my Rights, has giving me the necessary tools to stand up for my Grandson, to let my voice be heard. I am so blessed to be a part of this organization. BEST thing that has happened to me, after becoming a Grandmother.
