There are more than 500,000 children in the United States who have been removed from their homes. All of them deserve to have a family that loves and protects them. Could you offer your home and love to just one needy child?

Adelphoi’s foster care program offers these children a stable, structured environment, ensuring their physical and emotional safety while away from their families. Our foster parents work as part of a treatment team where permanency and treatment plans are developed for youth in conjunction with the courts, the natural family, and Adelphoi. Through ongoing training and support, Adelphoi Village provides foster parents with the tools to deal with situations they may encounter.

The foster family’s primary responsibility is to guide, love, and discipline the youth as she/he progresses in overall development. Our ultimate goal is to reunite the family unit.

We help youth who are at-risk, abused, neglected, delinquent, and struggling with academic or behavioral issues recover from crisis & difficult circumstances.

Requirements to become a foster parent

You must meet minimum requirements to provide foster care in Pennsylvania. Foster parents for children in need must:

  • Be a minimum of 21 years old
  • Pass a criminal background check with fingerprinting
  • Have time and energy to devote to fostering
  • Live in a safe and healthy environment
  • Prove good health through a medical examination/physical
  • Maintain financial stability
  • Clear all home safety requirements
  • Complete required pre-service training hours
  • Finish the Home Inspection

After fulfilling all requirements during the approval process, licensed foster parents can welcome a foster child into their home. To maintain a valid license, foster parents must also participate in ongoing training each year.

All adults who are living in homes with foster children in Pennsylvania must pass a required criminal background check and fingerprinting. This includes adult children who are family members living at home.

There are other, more detailed requirements for foster homes, such as having a flushing toilet and an operable phone. Prospective foster parents will learn more details during foster parent orientation.

Once you've decided to foster, you can contact a public or private foster agency or the Pennsylvania State Resource Family Association. Foster agencies screen and train prospective foster families and ensure applicants are good candidates for foster care.

I am now 18 and i have to say honestly this was the worst experience ever I was in there for almost a year I suffered a lot of ptsd from this place and trauma. I feel as if the staff were very rude towards me and would restrain me for no reason at all they were very strict on a lot of stupid small things and I do not recommend sending your kid here.

Donna may be a great lady, unfortunately this is the last place you want your child to go.
Especially if you care about them and want a mentally stable child when they return. They over medicate the children! I have a family member here unfortunately our grandfather had a stroke, we broke the news and they were obviously distraught. After the call they sat with their head down at the kitchen table to take a breath and let out a few tears if needed.
Not wanting to embarrass themselves in front of the others decided to stay at the table for a bit. Staff approached and TOLD them to get up from the table and go to the other room.
Instead of rubbing their back and/or simply asking what the issue may be. The staff determined it was noncompliance and decided throwing them to the ground and restrain them was the best option. That alone is a writeup and will ease all the progress made the previous months, which causes the child to start from square one. Basically like the just stepped foot on the campus again. Without know or even trying to understand the issue. In my opinion this is a money grad and most staff seem to me power hungry while taking advantage of their authority. The children don't know what is okay to do or when. For example TALKING or NOT TALKING could make or break the progress of that day meaning the 3 months that may have been sentence could turn to 6 or 12. I understand what they a trying to do for the kids but they are being put into the wrong hands. In my opinion untrained strangers are watching over them. Simply people who don't understand empathy. Something needs to be done. It's heart breaking that every time you get a call from your loved one they are in tears because what they were promised will no longer be. Being bullied by the staff something you maybe expect from the other children but unfortunately it's the ADULTS. That just a few things I have to say, I won't get started on what's supposed to be their personal belongings.

They really are helping. Communication could be a little better sometimes but most of the time the staff are really good with it.

Since you guys got my last review removed. I'm 33 now and as a teen Spent years here as ordered by the courts. Sweeny home to be exact. Rampant abuse by staff members, I was hit in the face by grown men. The therapist over medicate you. You guys abuse kids and you know it. It's all for money.
