Welcome to AFFCNY Network

a free support network for New York’s adoptive, foster and kinship communities

The AFFCNY Network was created to provide a safe online space for New York’s adoptive, foster and kinship families to come together in the spirit of connection and support.

Partly in repose to the needs of our families for continued support and education during the COVID-1 pandemic and partly as a result of the success of the 2020 Online Conference, the Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York has decided to open up this virtual space to the larger New York state community. We are officially relaunching on September 1, 2020 as the newly rebranded AFFCNY Network! Designed to be a closed social network, very much like Facebook, this online safe space is  dedicated to the needs to the adoptive, foster and kinship families.  


With your free membership, you can create a personal member profiles and connect with people you know.  As we come together as a dedicated online community, we can also split off and form smaller groups, topics and discussions based on your own family’s specific needs, interests, challenges or location. Familiar features such as groups, events and private chats along with notifications and a wonderfully adapted mobile application are sure to make the AFFCNY Network a much needed oasis that you can go to again and again.


While it is free to join, we do request that you fill out a simple registration form over at our website so we can ensure the safety of all in the community.  Just pop over to our site at www.AFFCNY.org to fill out the registration form. You can find all of the Coalition's hosted events on our Training and Events RSVP Page as well.



It will only take about a minute to fill out your registration form and then you will immediately be brought back here via a special link.  At that point, click the button this page that says JOIN!

  • Once you have created your account and accessed the AFFCNY Network, you ONLY SIGN IN NEXT TIME! ( it sounds confusing but its really easy!)

That's it!


About the Adoptive and Foster Family Coalition of New York 

Incorporated in 1975, the Coalition unites foster, adoptive and kinship care families, giving them a voice and providing support, information and advocacy. By fostering communication and collaboration between families, agencies and concerned citizens, we seek to ensure the stability, well-being and permanency of all children. Our vision is that no foster, adoptive or kinship care family in New York State will feel alone or unsupported and that all such families will have the tools, support and community they need to nurture their children and be role models for others. 


PS:

Think of the AFFCNY Network a cleaner, simpler Facebook that has awesome mobile features and capabilities. That means you can get the App for free on your devices and access trainings, events, support and information in multiple ways as needed. With access on your phone, you can control the level of notifications and reminders so you never have to miss a thing.
