Through a strong system of care and our exemplary foster families, Adelphoi is able to help these children grow and develop within a healthy family environment.

Become a Foster Parent
There are more than 500,000 children in the United States who have been removed from their homes. All of them deserve to have a family that loves and protects them. Could you offer your home and your love to just one child in need?
Adelphoi Village’s foster care program, a premier provider of foster care services in Southwestern PA, offers these children with a stable, structured environment, ensuring their physical and emotional safety while they are away from their families. Our foster parents work as part of a treatment team where permanency and treatment plans are developed for youth in conjunction with the courts, the natural family, and Adelphoi Village. Through ongoing training and support, Adelphoi Village provides foster parents with the tools necessary to deal with situations they may encounter along the way.
The foster family's primary responsibility is to guide, to love, and to discipline the youth as she/he progresses in overall development. Our ultimate goal is to reunite the family unit.
Options available include:
- Specialized Foster Care for difficult to place children
- Intensive Foster Care for youth with more intense problems
- Pregnant and Parenting Care to work with pregnant teens and new mothers
Adelphoi Village foster families receive 24-hour on-call assistance, and are eligible for reimbursements and compensation.
A daily reimbursement is offered to each family who fosters a youth to help meet the youth's daily needs. The amount varies depending on the services that the youth requires and the length of service of the foster parent. An increased daily reimbursement is contingent upon successful completion of each annual evaluation.
All medical services and prescription drug costs incurred by the youth in care are covered by health insurance, parental insurance, or by the placing agency.
Adelphoi Village conducts a family preparation program, as well as ongoing training, that provides parents with the knowledge and resources necessary to deal with children’s issues.
Adelphoi Village provides ongoing support and case management from caring Adelphoi staff, including a 24-hour on-call service. You become part of a team that is working toward the best possible outcome for your foster child.

Adelphoi provides Kinship Care Services to determine whether a potential kin caregiver’s home is a safe placement for youth remanded to the child welfare system. Adelphoi offers two types of services: Home Safety/Caretaker Assessment Study and Formal Kinship Caregiver Services.
The Home Safety/Caretaker Assessment Study is used to evaluate the safety of a potential kin caregiver’s home and assess the ability of the kin caregiver. The assessment, which includes a home inspection, is based upon a careful, responsive assessment of the strength and needs of the youth and birth family and the ability and desire of the kinship caregiver to meet these needs.
The Formal Kinship Caregiver Services includes regular casework services within the home on a bi-weekly basis.
For more information on Kinship Care, please contact Robin Klimke at 724-804-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
