Hello & Welcome
Helping Families – Helping Children
The Texas Foster Family Association was formed in the 1970s as Texas State Foster Parents, Inc. We currently do business as Texas Foster Family Association (TFFA) to better reflect that we serve and support the entire family unit and not only the foster parents. In the past, there were many local foster parent associations that needed leadership and guidance, thus the beginning of the current association. Nearly 30 years ago, the State began outsourcing foster care to
the private sector and many of those families were not included in local foster parent associations, creating more need for TFFA to provide support resources. Due to other changes in the system, there was also an increased need for advocacy efforts. For over four decades, TFFA has focused on supports and services needed by the children in foster care and the foster families who so diligently serve them.
