Foster Family Programs Operating Under New Name

Dear MYS community,

We wanted to share some important news about our foster care program.

For many years, these programs have operated under the identity of Alternative Parent Homes (APH) and Purple Martin.

For some time, we have felt that neither the APH or Purple Martin labels adequately or consistently conveyed the benefit or function of this service.

After a great deal of thought and consultation, we are pleased to announce that as of Jan 1, 2021, these programs will be amalgamated and known henceforth collectively as Heart to Home.

We believe this new name represents a unified identity and conveys a more appropriate emotional value of the service. It should be noted that nothing else will change. Agencies and families can continue to rely on the same specialized supports and service for children they’ve come to expect.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:

In the spirit of family,
