LAYC's Child Placement programs provide housing and intensive case management services to children and youth in Washington, DC. Each of the programs protects the safety and well-being of some of DC's most vulnerable children and youth by placing them with certified/licensed families in the District. These families receive training and support such that they can provide a temporary safe haven to the children/youth during a critical moment in their lives.

Once a child is placed in a certified/licensed home, our bilingual team of professionals provides intensive case management services to the child/youth, the biological family, and the host/foster family. The ideal goal is to return (or "reunite") the child/youth with their biological families under better circumstances and with more community support in place. In the case that family reunification is not possible, our team of professionals works closely with the child/youth and their families to identify other more appropriate living arrangements.

Do you know someone who might be interested in becoming a host, foster, or adoptive parent? If so, contact us today! We would love to hear from you.

LAYC Host and Foster Parents can be:

  • English and/or Spanish speaking;
  • Single or married;
  • Renters or homeowners;
  • U.S. citizens or legal residents; and
  • Individuals with or without children of their own.
