Our Mission:

“To match children with loving and nurturing families so they may form mutually satisfying and healthy relationships.”


We Help Children Grow

The Giocosa Foundation’s motto, “We Help Children Grow”, was coined several years ago by a teenager who was placed in one of our foster homes. The boy created this expression to describe his personal thoughts of the Foundation. It has since inspired us to adopt the phrase as our primary slogan.

The commitment the Foundation has to providing for the best interests of a child makes us a unique child-placing agency. We are small in size, but large in our dedication to placing children with families committed to stabilizing a foster child’s environment. This includes nurturing the child’s development, offering them a secure and loving home, providing continuity in their life and helping them heal from the past.
