This article highlights the work of New York City’s Jewish Child Care Association (JCCA), one of the few organization in the country focused solely on supporting biological parents who face the prospect of seeing their children placed in foster care. JCCA’s parent advocates provide peer-to-peer support, including independent advice to parents on their rights and responsibilities while they are under investigation by the city. The experiences of one parent with JCCA are described.
