Foster Care

There are thousands of children in foster care in Massachusetts and New Hampshire waiting to be matched with a family.

Ascentria provides the highest level of support and services to foster families, including:
  • 24/7 emergency on-call support
  • generous financial reimbursement
  • training
  • networking
  • respite opportunities
In accordance with our mission of empowering people and strengthening communities, we work with foster children and families of all backgrounds and beliefs.

The goal of Ascentria foster care is to help children reach their potential by learning skills that help them build self-esteem, recognize their own innate value, restore their trust in other people, and help them deepen and maintain lasting relationships with their foster families.

Who are the Children in Need of Homes?

They are children who need and want families who can understand their challenges and provide a safe and nurturing environment. Many have a history of physical, emotional or sexual abuse or neglect which can lead to challenging behaviors. They do need more guidance, more structure and more teaching. But like all children, they want to learn, to grow, to belong and to be loved for who they are. They are children with unique strengths who can and will heal over time in a caring, stable, and responsive family.
  • Foster children can be boys or girls of any age, race, and ethnic background
  • Ascentria places children from birth to 22 years old
  • Some need temporary homes and some need families who will raise them into adulthood
  • Some will be available for adoption and some will return to their biological families
