Foster Parents Wanted For LGBT Youth

flagOn Wednesday, October 8 at 6:00 p.m., Family Residences And Essential Enterprises, Inc. (FREE), in partnership with the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) and the LI GLBT Network , will be holding an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender) foster parent recruitment event at their headquarters in Old Bethpage, NY.

 LGBT affirming families are always being sought to provide welcoming homes to LGBT youth in care.  Affirming families are those who will welcome LGBT youth into their home, treat them with dignity and respect and work to meet their unique needs. You do not need to identify as LGBT yourself to become an affirming family for an LGBT youth. 

Registration for this event is necessary and the deadline is September 24th, 2014.  For additional information about this event please contact Development and Mission Advancement at (516) 870-1661 or

If you are interested in being matched with an LGBT youth, please call the ACS Parent Recruitment Hotline at (212) 676-WISH (9474).
