Nature and Purpose of Agency
Forestdale, Inc. is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian voluntary
agency that offers comprehensive services to children and
families. Forestdale currently provides foster boarding home
services for children from birth through age twenty-one, to
children who are victims of abuse and neglect, and for whom
placement outside the family is deemed necessary by the Family
Court or voluntary placement has been requested by the birth
parents. In providing and operating a preventive program,
Forestdale incorporates the principles of strengthening families,
keeping them intact, and helping each individual within the family
become more self-sufficient, while at the same time providing
services to reduce the risk of abuse, neglect and/or placement of a
child into the foster care system.
