Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster parent to children and youth with New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS).

We look forward to matching you with one of our foster care agencies located within the five boroughs who will provide you with critical information, guidance and support throughout the process. In order to match you with an agency, we have a couple of questions. We encourage all interested applicants to complete the Foster or Adoptive Parent Recruitment Form. Please be advised that answering, “no” to any of the below questions is not an automatic disqualifier.
