As part of this program, Resource parents are offered:

  • Ongoing training

  • Tax free stipend
  • And best of all…the opportunity to help a child succeed!

Our Therapeutic Foster Care Program serves youth in need of care and their families in the Southern Tier and western New York areas.

The Therapeutic Foster Care Program is approved by the NYS Office of Children and Family Services and is committed to effectively recruiting, training, and supporting Resource Parents. Our Resource Parents offer intense support and care to youth participating in the program.
