Iowa Foster and Adoptive Parents Association

For over 40 years, the Iowa Foster and Adoptive Parents Association (IFAPA) has been a voice for Iowa's foster and adoptive children through the support it provides to the parents of these children. In 1973, a group of foster parents joined together to create a membership organization for foster and adoptive families. IFAPA was originally operated by these volunteer foster and adoptive parents, but because of the successful growth of the organization, staff were hired to continue with IFAPA's mission.
