35th Annual New York State Foster Care & Adoption Conference

May 9th & 10th, 2024

Location: The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY

The Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York returns with the 35th Annual New York State Foster Care and Adoption Conference!

For over three decades, the Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York's annual statewide conference has provided an opportunity for foster/kinship care/adoptive parents to be inspired, network and learn about the latest in the field. Aimed at parents and professionals alike, the conference brings leaders in the child welfare field to New York and offers a variety of topical workshops designed to deepen the knowledge of attendees, help to form connections with other parents and professionals and give attendees tools they can bring home and share in their community. Nationally-known plenary speakers and workshop presenters share their knowledge and expertise to help participants gain perspective, increase skills, and learn to appreciate the positives.

What's New at FFTA?

Forever Families Through Adoption, Inc. Voluntarily Relinquishes Hague Accreditation

After much consideration, our Board of Directors along with the support of the FFTA staff has made the decision to voluntarily relinquish our Hague Accreditation. Due to the closing of several countries' programs to adopt from the United States, plus a global pandemic, it is no longer feasible to continue our Hague Status, which we proudly maintained since 2008. We have felt honored to be able to work with CEAS, IAAME, the Department of State and so many Domestic and International Adoption Service Providers, such as ANW, EFKO, CONANI, TDH and prospective adoptive parents throughout the years. What an amazing experience to help build families here and across the ocean! FFTA is looking forward to expanding our Domestic and Foster to Forever programs.

We wish all of our international friends well as we enter an exciting 2024!!
