EVERY CHILD DESERVES A LOVING HOME.
In a perfect world, children would be safe, loved and cared for. Unfortunately, many children exist in families where abuse, neglect, drugs and alcohol are the norm. Adelphoi’s foster, kinship and adoptive families provide both temporary and permanent loving homes for children whose biological parents can’t or won’t care for them.
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’s foster care program 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. 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.
Adelphoi, a premier provider of foster care services in Southwestern PA, has been placing foster kids successfully for over 30 years. 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.
Adelphoi offers foster care services based upon the needs of the child, including Teen-Focused Foster Care Intensive Foster Care for youth with more intense problems and Pregnant and Parenting Care to work with pregnant teens and new mothers.

ADOPT A WAITING CHILD
Adoptive families are the answer to many children’s prayers. Adoptive families provide permanent loving homes for children whose biological parents can’t or won’t care for them.

Through its affiliation with the Statewide Adoption Network (SWAN), Adelphoi is able to register its adoptive parents through the Pennsylvania Adoption Exchange.
