Our Family Foster Care and Adoption program provides safety and care to children who have been removed from their parents because of possible neglect or abuse. All foster parents are screened prior to licensing.
Foster Care staff and foster parents work as a team so all children can achieve permanency as quickly as possible. Birth parents receive immediate services so they can address the issues that cause their children to be removed from their care. These services are provided through our Staten Island and Brooklyn offices. Seamen’s Society makes every effort to return a child home; if this is not possible, we find a permanent loving home for the child through adoption. Many of our foster parents adopt the child in their home if return to parent is not possible.
