When are the CTFPA’s meeting held?

Generally, meetings are held the 3rd Saturday of each month. The newsletter and this website will announce any changes to that schedule.

Do I need to own my own house to be eligible to be foster parent in the state of Texas?

No, but there is a space requirement per child.

Is it hard to be a foster parent?

Yes, but it can be very rewarding. Not everyone is cracked up to be one. Fortunately, there are many resources and training is available.

What’s the difference between being an associate or a member of the association?

Members are generally people who are foster parents. Associate members are for people in the “foster care” field and/or licensed social workers.
