Department of Social Services - Foster and Adoptive Parents Association of Nassau County

The Foster and Adoptive Parent Association of Nassau County is a small, but active organization created for the benefit of children in foster care or who have been adopted through the foster care system. Aside from being a support system for foster and adoptive parents, we are involved in advocacy for children in our care. We also provide recreational activities for foster and adoptive families, and we engage in fund-raising that directly benefits the children in our care.
