How We Help.

REGIONAL SUPPORT

We encourage the development of local adoptive and foster parent associations with Sub-Regional Vice Presidents who are local area representatives committed to giving the personal attention necessary for each area’s continuing growth.

EDUCATIONAL TRAINING

We seek to promote community education and awareness of issues and needs of foster and adoptive care. Board members are encouraged to speak out locally to area groups, media and interested parties on issues of concern and interest to families.

GOVERNMENT ADVOCACY

We acknowledge that there is always need for improvements, and we are always searching for and supporting viable reforms that will improve the quality of the adoption environments and family foster care.

COMMUNITY AWARENESS

We seek to promote community education and awareness of issues and needs of foster and adoptive care. Board members are encouraged to speak out locally to area groups, media and interested parties on issues of concern and interest to families.

What We’re All About

The Adoptive and Foster Parent Association of Georgia (AFPAG) began in 1973 and was originally the Foster Parent Association of Georgia. One of the main goals is to unify all foster parents, agency representatives and communities to benefit children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned and come into the foster care system for a safe, loving environment. Several years ago, adoptive parents were recognized, and the name was changed to reflect the growing number of adoptions occurring as the result of foster parents adopting their children. Today approximately 85% of all DHR adoptions are by foster parents. For these children, AFPAG works in cooperation with public and private welfare agencies to improve foster care and adoption processes, support foster/adoptive families and provide educational training related to family needs within the foster care system. We advocate for Foster and Adoptive Parents at the local county and state DFCS levels, as well as with the Georgia General Assembly regarding child-welfare issues that impact our families. AFPAG is Georgia’s largest advocate for foster and adoptive homes.
