Become a Foster Parent
Each day, foster parents make a difference in the lives of children. They reach out to children who need guidance, support, and a caring family. Many children and their families are facing difficulties and have no other place to turn. In every situation, foster parents teach them valuable life skills.
A primary goal of the foster care program is to take the necessary steps to reunite children with their birth families whenever possible. If that goal is out of reach, foster parents help a child prepare for adoption or independent living.
The House has foster family homes located throughout eight counties in central and northern New York State. Offices in Utica and Watertown coordinate the foster care program.
Children range in age from birth to 21 years old and are facing difficult situations.
