Community-Based Foster Care

The best place for a child to learn and grow is in a family environment, and Abbott House strives to ensure that each child entrusted to our care is given that opportunity in Foster Boarding Homes and Therapeutic Foster Boarding Homes. Courageous families who open their homes and hearts to Abbott House youth are provided with a robust array of support services with the goal of creating the best possible outcome for foster youth.

Our Foster Boarding Home programs help match children every day with a caring foster parent. If a child has special needs, he or she can find a foster family through our Therapeutic Foster Boarding Home programs. All foster parents are given 24-hour access to support systems so that emergencies can be diffused, questions can be answered, and families can grow successfully.
