The St. Clare’s Homes for Children is a key program of the AIDS Resource Foundation for Children (ARFC), which was founded in 1985. ARFC is committed to helping individuals, children, and families who are impacted by HIV/AIDS or are faced with other social and health-related barriers to be resilient and to build healthier futures. The first St. Clare’s Home for Children opened its doors in May 1987 and was identified as the first transitional care facility in the nation for children with HIV/AIDS, giving abandoned HIV positive babies a loving home away from at-risk living situations.  Today there are 3 St. Clare’s Homes for Children (Elizabeth, Jersey City, and Neptune, NJ) which have offered transitional care to over 1,700 of the most vulnerable children. St. Clare’s is a contracted partner with the NJ Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P) and provides children with medical, nutritional, developmental and social support at a critical period in their lives. It works with DCP&P caseworkers to ensure each child is ready for placement when permanent homes are identified. It also offers support to biological, foster and adoptive families through educational and training resources, and comprehensive Respite Care.
