KAFPA Summer Youth Program for Foster and Low-Income Youths

The Kinship, Adoptive and Foster Parent Association (KAFPA) of Santa Clara County founded in 1989, provides resources and advocates for the needs of kinship, adoptive and foster families in Santa Clara County. KAFPA offers the summer youth program to help foster and low-income youth in Santa Clara County to participate in summer activities that they would not normally be able to participate in. We encourage families to sign their children up.

We are very excited to announce that the Board of Supervisors has granted us funding for camps and enrichment activities for our youth! There are several things that you can sign-up for that would be included under this grant like: karate, music lessons, art classes, fitness after-school activities, horseback riding lessons, camps and activities for special needs children, etc.
