Become A Parent


One of the most direct and meaningful ways to positively impact the lives of children and youth is by becoming a foster or adoptive parent.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to have perfect credit, or own your own house, or be married. The most important requirement is willingness to share the love you have and be patient.


Adopt Us Kids is a great starting place to dispel common myths about fostering and adopting. It is also a great place to get started on the path to becoming a foster or adoptive parent and reading other adoption stories.

Live in NYC?

The Administration for Children’s Services is your starting point for becoming a foster or adoptive parent. For guidance, please feel welcome to contact us. We’d be happy to support and connect you to the necessary individuals that will set you on the path of fostering/adoption.
