Fostering Futures

The mission of Fostering Futures New York Chenango County (FFNYCC) is to support foster families in building better futures for children and youth.

Fostering Futures

How it works

 We recruit and train small teams of volunteers from the community that offer natural and practical support to foster families.  Serving as an “extended family” for foster parents and children, the teams provide stability, enriching experiences, and vital community connections.  Team members pitch in when foster parents ask for help, affirming the value of what foster parents do and encouraging them to keep on doing it. Even a minimum contact of once per month can make a huge difference in the lives of foster families.
This opportunity came to I.N.N. as a result of a connection with our local Department of Social Services and an existing branch of Fostering Futures NY located in the Capital Region, and we are hopeful to raise funding in order to continue this offering here in Chenango County.

As of September 2020, we have four teams of 4-6 volunteers actively supporting local foster families. Please, contact us to learn more about FFNYCC and upcoming training opportunities.
