Give Hope a Home

The Foster Family Program at Northern Rivers provides foster and pre-adoptive foster homes for children requiring out-of-home placement from birth through age 21. As members of a nationally accredited agency, Northern Rivers’ foster parents and staff are some of the most highly trained and talented caring adults in New York state.

A proud partner with many communities throughout upstate New York, Northern Rivers has offices in Albany, Binghamton, Hudson, Johnstown, Oneonta, Queensbury and Schenectady, ensuring local support for our foster families in more than a 20-county service area. Northern Rivers is now certifying and managing foster homes in Dutchess, Herkimer and Oneida Counties.
