Foster Parent Support
Abbott House provides 24 hour, 7 day a week support for our foster parents. If you have a crisis or just a question, contact us anytime at 718-329-4968 or 914-274-7268.
Foster parents are encouraged to join our Foster/Adoptive Parent Association (NYC or Westchester County based). Each group is led by an experienced foster parent. The associations meet monthly with an agency liaison from Homefinding and Intake team.
Other services include monthly support groups with relevant topics and guest speakers. Topics typically include child behavior, trauma, adolescent challenges and triumphs, psychiatric disorders, medication protocol, caring for LGBTQ children, caring for children who have been sexually abused, and working with birth parents. These groups give foster parents a chance to create social networks with others, and to share their challenges and accomplishments.
To join our family of foster parents today, call 914-591-7300, ext. 3165.
