Therapeutic Foster Care

Astor provides treatment-oriented family foster care, supported by intensive clinical services, to children and youth in two programs. These serve the mid-Hudson Valley region, primarily Orange and Dutchess counties.

The Therapeutic Foster Boarding Home Program has offices in Middletown (Orange) and Poughkeepsie (Dutchess) and serves an average of 30 children in the care of specially trained foster parents. This program is overseen by the NYS Office for Children and Family Services.

Astor also provides specialized care in family settings through its Family-Based Treatment Program, certified by the NYS Office of Mental Health. This program serves a capacity of 10 children and is based in Poughkeepsie.

Both programs feature strong staff support to foster parents, and the provision of mental health and medical services directly by staff as well as through linkages with local providers.
