  The South Carolina Foster Parent Association (SCFPA) was founded by Carl Brown in 1975. Carl and his wife, Mary, began fostering children in 1974. Heavily involved in the National Foster Parent Association, they quickly realized the need for a state association. In the 35 years since it was formed, the SCFPA has served as infrastructure and support for SC foster parents. Presently, there 41 county or county-cluster organizations serving all 46 SC counties; each with its own elected officials and DSS liaison. County/County-Cluster Presidents convene quarterly to ensure effective communication statewide with regard to training, legislation affecting the foster care system and other pertinent issues. The SCFPA has established a number of programs designed to assist foster parents in providing for the needs of the children in their care; programs that benefit the children from an academic standpoint as well as socially, psychologically, and emotionally.
