IFAPA Conferences

IFAPA hosts a spring and fall training conference every year for foster and adoptive parents, kinship caregivers and social workers. All of our conference trainings are approved for foster parent credit and many are also approved for social work CEUs. Families/social workers have the option to attend the full-conference or may choose to attend only Friday or Saturday. Our conferences offers many great training opportunities you cannot find anywhere else!
