Licensed Boarding Home for Boys & Girls

Our Mission and Our Goal
Our mission is to offer exceptional care and treatment to "Hard to Place" children currently in foster care, with the underlying belief that every child can be helped. Our goal is to restore the joy and vitality of childhood in children who have not been afforded this basic right and to transform maladaptive behaviors into resilience.

Our Vision for Child & Family Services

Our vision is to be a leader in our industry by developing and initiating new ways of thinking. As New York State's newest licensed agency boarding home, we are setting trends and defining "what's next" by exploring new ways of thinking about how we serve our children and their families. St. John Bosco Child & Family Services aims to be a place where people enjoy working and where they feel—and see—that they are making a difference.

Our Scope & Ambition

Walden, New York-based St. John Bosco Child & Family Services is here for and inspired by the children and families whose needs exhaust the foster care system and whose lives exist in a seemingly unending cycle of crisis. Despite the myriad of social services available, issues of violence, substance abuse, mental illness, and poverty permeate and undermine the intimate relationships between a parent and child, leaving children to exist on the fringe of deplorable and/or dangerous lives.

At St. John Bosco Child & Family Services we aspire to embrace these families, and their children, without judgment; serving without conditions and forging relationships that ignite hope and foster resilience. Our ultimate goal is the reunification of children with their families, and their return to a life where they feel productive, safe, and valued.
