Foster Care Programs

Communities for People provides foster care services in both MA and RI for children and adolescents in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (DCF) and the Rhode Island Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF). We are always in need of foster parents. You or someone you know could be right for the job.

Who We Need

The “best fit” families not only answer to youth’s physical needs for safety and permanency but also appreciate their cultural backgrounds and cultivate their strengths. All adults who can provide a safe, stable and a loving home are encouraged to apply to get involved. Individuals or couples, regardless of marital status or sexual orientation, may apply.

Who Are Our Youth

Many of the children and youth, or adolescents, referred to our programs for foster care or adoption have experienced some type of abuse or neglect. As a result of these experiences, many face emotional, educational, developmental, or behavioral challenges. We also seek homes to place sibling groups and children/youth with special medical needs.
