The Motto of Texas Foster Family Association: Helping Families~Helping Children
Texas Foster Family Association is guided by:
*A belief in the value of children

Our purpose is to educate, motivate and support foster/foster-adoptive parents and to be a united voice advocating issues concerning foster/foster-adoptive families.

For over three decades TFFA has focused on protecting children by working to progressively improve the Texas Foster Care system to ensure provision of the supports and services needed by the children in foster care and the foster families who so diligently serve them twenty-four hours a day, every day.
*TFFA is governed by an elected Board of Directors that meet three times a year, with the Executive Committee meeting 6 times a year, three in conjunction with the full Board of Directors meetings. Agency staff from all CPS regions as well as staff representatives from private child placing agencies meet with the Board and provide information, advice and leadership. All of these meetings are open to attendance by foster parents and staff. You are welcome to attend and learn about the day-to-day work of the association.
*TFFA membership and participation is open to all Texas foster parents and staff – both public and private – and any groups or individuals interested in positively impacting the foster care system in the state. TFFA is living proof that the public and private sectors can work very effectively together to provide the latest and best information, training and advocacy efforts to Texas foster families and the staff who work for them.
*TFFA will now be offering three training opportunities around the state.
*TFFA is a non-profit, 501 (c) (3), association funded by a combination of public and private funds to include dues paid by members.
