Livingston County Proclaims May 2023 as Foster Care Month


GENESEO, N.Y., May 18, 2023 – The Livingston County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed May 2023 to be Foster Care Month – a time to recognize and appreciate those who support youth and families by being a resource to children in need.

Across the United States, over 214,000 foster parents have opened their homes and hearts to help close to 400,000 youth in need of a loving home.  Locally, Livingston County has a long-standing history of helping those in need by providing guidance, shelter and healthy environments where infants, toddlers and teens can receive the education, healthcare, respect and direction needed to live full, productive lives.  

“I’m proud of the commitment that Livingston County has shown in helping to ensure that youth throughout our communities are provided with the highest levels of care and compassion when needed,” said Tracy McCaughey, Commissioner of the Livingston County Department of Social Services.  “The long-lasting, positive impacts that foster families have had in helping to shape the next generation speaks to the character and sense of family that makes Livingston County such a wonderful place to live.”  

Livingston County is encouraging families who are willing to become supportive resources for youth in our community to become a foster parent, respite resource, volunteer or mentor.   Residents who are interested in any of these fulfilling opportunities are urged to contact the Livingston County Department of Social Services for more information at (585) 243- 7300.
