Opportunities to get involved:

Become a foster parent.

DAYS offers foster care for children and youth in need of out of home placement. DAYS specializes in foster care for adolescent youth transitioning back into the community from juvenile detention facilities, also known as proctor care. DAYS also specializes in placements for pregnant and parenting adolescent mothers and homeless adolescent females - the Kearney Street Program.
