About Us

Monadnock area foster parent association was started in 1989.

Monadnock Area Foster Parent Association plays a big part in foster parent recruitment, working together with our NH Division for Children, Youth & Families (DCYF) foster care worker and agency staff. We sponsor recruitment booths at area events, write letters to the editor supporting foster parenting and talk to our neighbors, friends and co-workers about the value of foster parenting and its impact on children and families.

All licensed or permitted foster parents automatically become members of MAFPA as are all (DCYF) foster-adoptive parents, whether still active or not. Agency staff and interested community members are also allowed to become members upon application.

The DCYF foster parent pre-licensing training classes are well attended in our area and most complete the licensing process. The free training classes are offered by each of the DCYF offices across the state.
