The 1624/CAFPT board is comprised of volunteer foster parent representatives and regional/statewide leaders from Children's Administration. We meet quarterly to discuss issues that directly affect the recruitment and retention of Washington State foster families.
People wonder why folks do foster care. This report from the Omsbud's Office gives some insight as to what we are trying to prevent. Children deserve a good home to grow up in and the people that open there homes to provide a safe environment, even if it is not a perfect environment, deserve the respect and support of all those that don't foster. Click here to see the report on our web page. Think about becoming one of our Amazing 300.
I just want to share the letter Mark Fullington, Executive Director of Community & Family Service Foundation wrote to their foster parents in support of our Foster Parents Association of Washington State.
