There are more than 500,000 children in the United States who have been removed from their homes. All of them deserve to have a family that loves and protects them. Could you offer your home and your love to just one child in need?
Adelphoi Village’s foster care program, a premier provider of foster care services in Southwestern PA, offers these children with a stable, structured environment, ensuring their physical and emotional safety while they are away from their families. Our foster parents work as part of a treatment team where permanency and treatment plans are developed for youth in conjunction with the courts, the natural family, and Adelphoi Village. Through ongoing training and support, Adelphoi Village provides foster parents with the tools necessary to deal with situations they may encounter along the way.
The foster family's primary responsibility is to guide, to love, and to discipline the youth as she/he progresses in overall development. Our ultimate goal is to reunite the family unit.
Options available include:
Adelphoi Village foster families receive 24-hour on-call assistance, and are eligible for reimbursements and compensation.
A daily reimbursement is offered to each family who fosters a youth to help meet the youth's daily needs. The amount varies depending on the services that the youth requires and the length of service of the foster parent. An increased daily reimbursement is contingent upon successful completion of each annual evaluation.
A mileage reimbursement is provided for all travel that relates to the treatment of the foster child.
All medical services and prescription drug costs incurred by the youth in care are covered by health insurance, parental insurance, or by the placing agency.
Adelphoi Village conducts a family preparation program, as well as ongoing training, that provides parents with the knowledge and resources necessary to deal with children’s issues.
Adelphoi Village provides ongoing support and case management from caring Adelphoi staff, including a 24-hour on-call service. You become part of a team that is working toward the best possible outcome for your foster child.
