When NYC's Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) determines that a Jewish child is physically unsafe at home and there are no alternatives, they call Ohel. Ohel’s foster care program places Jewish children in Jewish Homes. We’re the only New York agency to make that commitment, and have consistently been ranked among the top foster care agencies in NYC.
Ohel provides for and funds the physical, emotional, educational, and recreational needs of the children in our care. Additionally, foster parents receive a monthly stipend when caring for a foster child.
With the support of our donors, children in our foster care program attend the same yeshivas and summer camps as the children of the foster parents, helping these children never to feel like an "other."
