Children and Family Services

A Brief Message About COVID-19: As our community is faced with an evolving pandemic, children need us now more than ever! Children in the care of Ascentria, whether in foster or adoptive homes, or supported in group care and residential settings, are some of our community’s most vulnerable children. That fact is only intensified by the current crisis. Despite the growing challenges, Ascentria continues to recruit, train, license and support foster families for our amazing children and teens.

Ascentria offers a continuum of community-based programs for families, children and teens at risk that provide safe residential environments and services that build and support strong and nurturing families. Our full service adoption program helps to unite children domestically and through the foster care system with loving parents who are prepared to nurture them. Through our specialized foster care and parenting teen programs, we provide safety and care for children and teens at risk while offering support, and training for families so that they are equipped to care for them.

Ascentria believes that all children deserve a permanent, secure and loving home. To that end, we serve children and families through an array of supportive, therapeutic and educational services that help them through difficult life transitions, for the purpose of providing safety and nurture, opportunities for healthy personal and social development, and resources that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
