Our HelpLine is the only statewide, free service designed specifically to assist foster parents, adoptive parents, relative caregivers and those wanting to foster or become parents.


We offer support to families including our Family Allegation Support Team (FAST), Family Court Education and Support (FACES), Ombudsman, and more post adoption support services.


The Coalition supports and coordinates volunteer and agency-led parent support groups for foster, adoptive and kinship parents throughout the state.

  Our FAIR program provides foster, kinship and adoptive families in New York State with the information they need to make informed decisions and the resources to help them and their children.

We offer several opportunities for families, parent support groups, agencies and professionals to build their skills including our Educational Support Series, Conference & Videos.

  The Coalition presents the state’s annual foster care and adoption conference each May in Albany for both foster and adoptive parents, relative caregivers, and professionals.   As the state’s foster and adoptive parent association, the Coalition advocacy focuses on issues that need system-wide attention through legislative and administrative advocacy.   We offer an online online directory of foster care and adoption services that lists adoption agencies, foster care program, therapists and more by county.
