About the Program
At Graham Windham our Family Foster Care programs help children to
get back to their families, adopted into a new family or connected to someone
who is willing to be an anchor for children, throughout their childhood and
into adulthood. To help us do that, we have hundreds of loving & highly
qualified foster parents primarily in Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx and
Westchester County- who serve as our foster children's substitute family.
