NATURE & PURPOSE OF SERVICE SITE:
Forestdale, Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian voluntary agency that offers comprehensive services to children and families. Forestdale currently provides foster boarding home services for children from birth through age twenty-one, to children who are victims of abuse and neglect, and for whom placement outside the family is deemed necessary by the Family Court, or voluntary placement has been requested by the birth parents. In providing and operating a preventive program, Forestdale incorporates the principles of strengthening families, keeping them intact, and helping each individual within the family become more self-sufficient, while at the same time providing services to reduce the risk of abuse, neglect and/or placement of a child into the foster care system.
