Families don't have to match

Open Your Heart and Home by Becoming a Foster Parent

Access Services’ Foster Care program is available to children who are in need of love and care in a nurturing, stable home when unable to be with their family. Foster parents are caregivers as well as agents of active change in a child’s life by setting a good example and providing the time, care, and attention that a child deserves. Foster parents ensure that every child has a place to call home, a safe place they can count on for growth and care.

Please consider opening your heart and home to a child who needs it most. Competitive rates, training and ongoing support are provided, with long-term and short-term options available.

Access Services Provider Recruitment team is taking all necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of our valued providers. Precautions include temperature checks, gloves, masks, and limited face to face meetings with multiple options to meet virtually or over the phone.

There are approximately 15,000 children who are currently in foster care in the state of  Pennsylvania.  Each and every one of them deserve a safe, nurturing and caring home where they can thrive.  Access Services’ Foster Care program exists to equip foster parents to provide these healing homes for children in Pennsylvania who are temporarily unable to remain with their biological families. Please consider opening your heart and home to a child or children who need it most.
