Who We Are

We at Foster Forward (formerly the Rhode Island Foster Parents Association) are a team of highly trained professionals who believe in the power of permanency and the resilience of families.  

We are researchers and thought leaders who pilot innovative programs as we work tirelessly toward improving the child welfare system.

We are concerned citizens who believe that every child deserves a chance to succeed, and who understand the societal implications if they do not.

We are empowering lives. We are fostering futures. We are Foster Forward.
