Family Kayaking

Thank you for your interest in becoming a foster parent with Berkshire! We cannot wait to

begin this journey with you!

Foster parent information sessions are for those interested in learning more about the need for foster, respite, or kinship families in their county and the steps required to becoming a foster parent. GPS II/MAPP certification courses are a 10 week program required for prospective foster and adoptive parents.

Click on your county session below to learn more and register for our next foster parent open house in your area. 

Our foster care program serves over 50 counties across NYS. If you don't see an available information session scheduled in your county or would prefer a 1:1 meeting to learn more about becoming a foster parent, fill out our Foster Parent Inquiry Form and a Homefinder from your area will contact you.
