Join the 300 Friend FPAWS (upper right hand of this page)

You have heard of the small army of Greeks spearheaded by 300 Spartans that did battle with the whole invading Persian army. FPAWS needs our own 300 Friends at the $100 level so that we can keep moving forward. I hope that over the next couple months you will get on the list of 300. Please share as those that don't foster can also be Friends of FPAWS. Click on this story to find the link to Friend FPAWS

The FPAWS Board is comprised of current or former foster, adoptive, kinship parents and kids. It is a Board that cares about the lives of these parents and the kids that find their way into their homes. Our focus is on training and being there when families have trouble with the system. We certainly don't have all the answers, but we work hard to find the needed solutions.

New Caregiver Guidelines

The Prudent Parenting law became effective on June 12, 2014.

Clothing Vouchers

In a July 24, 2014 meeting with Jennifer Strus, Assistant Secretary Children’s Administration, she agreed that children coming into a  foster home without sufficient clothing are entitled to a $200 clothing voucher. Jennifer adds that it will take time for the word to trickle down to the Social Workers, so if there are any issues she would like foster parents to take it up the chain until you get the voucher. If you have any questions, contact FPAWS.
