The Importance of National Adoption Month
More than 437,000 children and adolescents are currently in the foster care system, waiting for a loving family to welcome them home permanently. Right now, there are approximately 15,000 children in temporary foster care in Pennsylvania. The average age of children entering the foster care system is over six years old.
Foster Care Program
Pinebrook has been providing foster care services for forty years, with a variety of programs to meet the individual needs of children requiring out-of-home placement, and their families. Individualized goal setting and permanency planning begins at the time of placement and throughout the child’s care with Pinebrook. Children are placed in a safe, structured, family setting where the resource parents are nurturing, accepting, and enjoy helping children develop and grow.
