Therapeutic Foster Care

639146_15609950Therapeutic Foster Care provides coordination to ensure that children in foster care receive planned services in support of their overall well-being and their ability to return home. In addition, we recruit, train and support foster parents, providing:

  • Pre-service and ongoing training
  • 24/7 support
  • A generous monthly stipend
  • Foster family activities


61% of the youth served successfully achieved permanency goals either through reunification with family or alternatives including adoption. Success means demonstration of positive parent-child bonding taking place, increases in the child’s self-esteem, increases in positive behavioral skills and confidence, and demonstration of children and families connecting with the necessary services to ensure future success.

How to Enroll
Children who have special psychological, social, emotional or behavioral needs and are in need of foster care are referred to the program. Prospective foster parents come from all walks of life but have things in common including a love for children, dedication to child well-being, and the unique ability to love and let go of children who may return to their birth parents or be adopted. Prospective foster parents must go through a background check and meet certain other requirements. Call the program office for details.
