We are looking for some amazing families who are willing to welcome a child into their home. There are many children throughout the Capital Region who are in need of a safe, nurturing place to stay for a little while. Foster parents often find the experience extremely rewarding as they are making such a huge, immediate difference for the life of a child.

Mission Statement

To strengthen children and families so they can live safely, independently, and productively within their home communities.

Description

Berkshire provides a safe haven for children in need of care through one of our over 550 certified foster homes. Our Foster Care Program's primary goal is to work alongside our foster families to reunify children with their biological families as quickly as possible. When that is not an option, our team works tirelessly to identify "Forever Families" for those youth freed for adoption.
