Foster Parent Bill of Rights

We encourage foster/adoptive parent associations throughout New York to work for a Bill of Rights in your county and/or agency. Not only will you have an important accountability document, but in the process you will have educated local decision makers and the community about the challenges and joys of foster parenting, and opened their eyes to the realities of the needs of today’s children and families. We are happy to help in any way! The following examples below may assist you in thinking about issues a foster parent Bill of Rights could address.
