With more than 8,000 children in the New York foster care system, you can make a difference by opening your heart and home to a youth in need of your support.
Kids enter foster care through no fault of their own, and the odds are stacked against them. But it doesn’t have to be this way!
All foster youth deserve a safe and nurturing family so that they can thrive, whether they are 10 or 16 years old. They have missed a lot in their life, and you can help fill in those gaps.
Any adult, regardless of orientation, age, relationship status, or physical abilities, can be the loving and permanent parents that youth in foster care need and want. All it takes is a willingness to give love and support your child unconditionally!
If you have ever thought about doing this, please reach out. There is no commitment up front, and it’s an opportunity to learn more and answer your questions in a safe environment.
