Foster Home Services

Families1In New York City, nearly 14,000 children are in foster care. They have been removed from their homes because their caretakers are accused of abuse or neglect, or their inability to care for the children for whom they are responsible. JCCA is one of the largest and most respected foster care agencies in New York City, and this year was selected as one of five agencies to work with the City on groundbreaking new programs. Our services help place children with caring families and we help the families that have had their children removed from their homes as well as the families who serve as foster parents.

Our philosophy is simple: the infants and children in our care need safe and nurturing foster homes while their families work to resolve their difficulties. Where possible, we work with families to return the children to their parents and families permanently, and we seek to build strong connections and better relationships among family members. When we cannot return the children to their birth families, we work to find permanent, loving new families for them. We work with foster parents who receive extensive training and support from JCCA staff.

Anthony of FHSAnthony, foster youth

“I was smart and got good grades, but I was angry, too, and had trouble listening. At Pleasantville, the staff, especially Mr. Harrigan, taught me how to talk about my problems and how to express myself. I learned coping skills and strategies for dealing better with people." Anthony spent the next two years at Hillcrest, a JCCA group home. “The staff was great. I knew everybody was totally there for me and they really helped me thrive. They kept me focused and pointed me in the right direction.” At Hillcrest, Anthony learned the independent livings skills that would stand him in good stead at college. Read more >
