If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a foster parent, they can now dial 2-1-1 for more information.

United Way's 2-1-1 is partnering together with Westchester and Putnam County Government to get the word out that additional homes are needed for children whose parents are unable to care for them. Financial support and training for foster parents will be provided.
