About St. Joseph Orphanage

St. Joseph Orphanage Foster Care has been serving foster children and families since 1990, but began as an Orphanage in 1829.

As the needs of the community have grown over the last several years and the increasing needs of foster children have become apparent as thousands of children in foster care need homes; we understand the importance of offering our foster children & families all the support and guidance they need. Our services provide care for families and children of all ages, with all levels of mental & behavioral health concerns. Our families and staff are committed to a multi-system team approach and are truly a therapeutic foster care network.

Each foster child and family is paired with a licensed clinician with years of experience and understanding of the special care necessary for foster home success. When there is a special need identified, we can access psychological and special education professionals within the community or through our agency’s continuum of care to provide the required supports to maintain community placements.
