Family Foster Care
Programs and Services
The Family Foster Care Program is a Bronx-based program that has a lengthy history of helping children and families. The program currently provides foster and kinship care to approximately 400 children who have been referred to the agency through the Administration for Children's Services, as well as approximately 50 additional children in its Treatment Family Foster Care unit. The program also provides Adoption Services as part of its effort to establish permanency for its foster children.
The mission of the Family Foster Care program is to provide permanency for the children in our care. We seek homes with a safe, nurturing, healthy and healing environment which promote growth and development so that youngsters may attain their maximum potential.
"What's for Dinner?" is on everyone's mind who participated in the Saint Dominic's Home's Healthy Eating Initiative Program. Thanks to the Walmart Foundation, which was the lead in supporting this initiative, children and families from the Saint Dominic's Home Foster Care Program received a first-hand look at where their food comes from in this farm to table experience.
More than 1,400 construction, real estate, union and business leaders came together for the 35th Business and Labor Awards dinner held on January 26 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. The event raised a record-breaking $1.3 million for Saint Dominic's Home.
