Who We Are

Who We Are

The Texas Foster Care Association (TFCA) was formed in the late 70s as the Texas State Foster Parents, Inc. We currently do business as the TFCA to better reflect that we serve and support the entire family unit, including foster parents. in the past, there were many local foster parent associations that needed leadership and guidance, thus the beginning of our 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 the TFCA to provide support resources. Due to other changes in the system, there was also an increased need for advocacy efforts. For over four decades, the TFCA has focused on supports and services needed by the children in foster care and the foster families who so diligently serve them.
