About Us

The Edmonton & District Family Support Association (EDFSA) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization that strives to support, enhance, and strengthen families. 

The EDFSA is a democratic association that recognizes the varied interests of families.  We are committed to serving and supporting families who are struggling.  We support similarly-focussed organizations who share our goals of helping families stay strong.

The Association strives to promote a positive concept of fostering, adopting, and kinship care in our communities.

The EDFSA’s present activities include:

  • Promote delivery of support and services to families
  • Support quality care
  • Provide support and services to like-minded organizations
  • Develop education, training, and information for members
  • Promote positive images of foster, adoption, and kinship care.

We are not a foster care agency, however we can advise and assist you in communicating with your Agency or the government.
