WNYC: New Housing Designed to Support Young Moms in Foster Care Opens in The Bronx


Karen Yi of WNYC reports on our Mother and Child program, which recently moved into a dedicated building in The Bronx’s Castle Hill neighborhood.

“A New York City foster care provider is trying a novel approach to help the young moms in its care: housing them under one roof in apartments equipped with washer-dryer machines and where they can access support staff 24 hours a day…The organization said its ultimate goal is to help young moms learn to live on their own when they age out of foster care. The new side-by-side buildings will allow the Foundling to expand its mother and child program that works with young moms. Organizers hope their new approach can be a model for others.”
