Our name signifies a point along a journey at which you change course. That’s what we do. We help people and communities to change course. In 2018, we rebranded and changed our name from Child and Family Services to Waypoint to better reflect who we are and who we serve today--lifeline across the lifespan.

Fostering is amazing and rewarding. Right now, there is a child in YOUR community who needs you! Each child/adolescent needs a special person/family who can provide, kindness, patience and understanding….to provide a safe, stable, loving, and positive place to call home.

Waypoint is a founding member of the Child Welfare League of America, and we hold the distinction as NH delegate to the Children’s Home Society of America. To date, we are the only organization of our kind in New Hampshire to be accredited by the Council on Accreditation; COA designation means that we adhere to the highest standards of practice.

Requirements to become a foster parent

New Hampshire foster parents are entitled to support payments. These help cover the costs of caring for a foster child. Let's take a look at some of the available benefits:

Support Payments

In New Hampshire, foster parents receive reimbursement for daily costs. This includes board, meals, clothing, and other everyday expenses. The pay rate varies depending on the foster child's age and needs, but base payments begin at $24.48/day, up to $29.49/day.

Children with special needs are also entitled to additional specialized funds, up to $36.86/day. You can learn more about expense payments for New Hampshire foster parents by clicking here.

Medical and Dental Coverage

Children in the New Hamshire foster system are covered for dental and medical care under the Medicare system.

However, it's up to the foster parents to book all necessary medical appointments and make sure the foster child attends them.

Training and Support Groups

Alongside mandatory foster parent training, there are additional courses available. This extra training helps foster parents excel and provide the best possible environment for the children in their care.

Foster parents are also invited to attend local support groups, where they can meet their peers and talk about all aspects of being a New Hampshire foster parent.
