Adoption


The word alone seems full of questions. The process is unknown to most who haven't been through it, as are the rewards.

Concerned Persons For Adoption (CPFA) is a non-profit organization in the State of New Jersey dedicated to the belief that every child deserves a family. CPFA is not an adoption agency, but a volunteer organization working to support those who wish to adopt, and to provide educational and networking resources to those who have adopted.

          CPFA awards the 2022 Lynne Witkin Scholarship to Zandra Thomas

 
 
 

Congratulations to Zandra Thomas on being awarded the 2022 CPFA Scholarship! Ms. Thomas is a graduate student at Kean University expecting to earn her MSW degree in 2023. During the pandemic, her focus changed from a career in the Newark public schools to working on obtaining her MSW. Ms. Thomas has personal experiences in foster care, and hopes to use these in combination with her education to work for NJ State Child Protective Services. Her current field placement is with Integrity House at the Hudson County Correction and Rehabilitation Center where she has demonstrated her enthusiasm to learn and adeptness at applying her social work skills.
