There is a tremendous need for foster parents in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas, and surrounding communities. CHOICES, Inc. foster parents provide skilled and caring substitute families for children and teens who have been abused, neglected or deemed dependent by the courts. CHOICES offers a variety of benefits and 24 hour supports to our licensed foster parents.
CHOICES, Inc. operates the Foster Care Program with the philosophy that youth benefit from being in a least restrictive, safe, structured environment that stimulates and supports positive change and meets their physical, emotional and educational needs. The Foster Care Program serves youth from birth to 21 years of age, of all cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds, within the developmental range from normal to severely disabled.
Independent Living helps foster youth ages 17-21 transition to adulthood by providing supportive services and life skills education necessary to succeed. Youth in this program live in scattered site apartments while working towards self-sufficiency. Foster youth will work towards their identified education and job readiness goals while preparing to emancipate from care.
Home-Based Services offers children’s mental health services, counseling and therapy in the child’s home. Our goal is to help families thrive and stay together. We accept self referrals for children who qualify for Medicaid.
