"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world;
indeed it's the only thing that ever has."

About Us

Thanking our partners for their generous support



Helping foster children experience childhood the way all children deserve

Blue Bag Program


REFPA now provides each child who is entering foster care with a new duffel bag, filled with new clothes (appropriate for the child’s gender and size) and a few toys.

Foster Parenting is...

  • Learning and Developing....

    the parenting skills needed to meet the unique needs of each child.

  • A Commitment...

    to help children and their families through a difficult period; a foster parent must be able to provide love and guidance and then let go.

  • Caring for a child...

    who has been abused/neglected until his/her parent(s) can resume the responsibility, or a permanent home can be found.

  • An opportunity...

    to make a difference in a child’s life.
