Our Goals

Our Goals at IFAPA are to:

  • Ensure total elimination of any retaliation against foster parents who speak out for their foster children or themselves.
  • Encourage foster parent agencies to adhere to the “Foster Parent Law.
  • Strive to keep an open and honest dialog between ILFAPA groups/members and the ILFAPA Board of Directors, so we are able to help every foster family in Illinois. 
  • Establish consistency throughout the foster care system. 
  • Exact a reimbursement rate commensurate with the true expenses of foster care, including a built-in annual cost of living adjustment. 
  • To do this, we need your help. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to welcome you as a member soon.
