About Us

NewFound Families is the Virginia adoptive, foster, and kinship family association. We provide educational, advocacy, and support services to families caring for children unable to live with their birth parents. We are a non-profit organization organized as a 501 (c)(3) status and recognized as a corporation by the Virginia State Corporation Commission.

We are a member of the North American Council on Adoptable Children and an affiliate of the National Foster Parent Association.

Our work demonstrates our belief that foster, adoptive, and kinship families are our best opportunity to secure strong futures for children and youth not living with their birth parents and that mutual support strengthens families and improves placement stability for children and youth.

As a membership association we:

  • Support the recruitment and retention of quality foster, adoptive, and kinship families.
  • Advocate for consistent and standardized training and support for foster, adoptive, and kinship families.
  • Provide resources and information to families, empowering them to be educated, equipped, and effective as valued partners in protecting the health and safety of children and youth.
  • Advocate for the needs of foster, adoptive, and kinship families.
  • Advocate for the needs of all foster, adoptive, and kinship families in Virginia.
  • Build partnerships with local agencies, private agencies, state government, and many other organizations working to improve the lives of children not living with their birth parents.

NewFound Families membership is open to any individual, agency, or organizations supporting our mission. Join today and help us build a strong statewide voice for foster, adoptive, and kinship families. Together, we can make Virginia a better place for children and youth unable to live with their birth parents.
