Wheeler’s Foster Care programs, funded by the Department of Children and Families, provide 24-hour supported family homes to children and adolescents, generally ranging in age from 6 to 17 from all races, religions and cultures. The lives of these children have been disrupted for reasons including neglect, abuse and abandonment.

Wheeler needs foster parents to open their homes and help children feel safe by understanding their unique strengths and personalities, and facilitating their recovery from trauma. Our team of experts coordinates services for children of all age groups and backgrounds with the goal of providing a nurturing home and a structured environment for children and adolescents. Families are part of a team of professionals and are supported throughout the placement process and beyond with training and financial compensation.
