WHAT TYPE OF CHILDREN DO WE PLACE?

We place children and youth between birth and age seventeen who are exhibiting mild to moderate emotional and/or behavioral disturbances.  Some children or youth may also be developmentally delayed or medically fragile.  These children are considered by the “system” as hard to place children.  Our mission is to find families who consider fostering a child their calling.

HOW DOES THERAPEUTIC FOSTER CARE WORK?

To help you decide if you are interested in becoming a foster parent we provide you with an orientation in which you will become familiar with what you can expect.  You will learn the standards that are set to ensure a safe and nurturing environment for each one of the children and youth.  There is a intensive and supportive training process to assist you in becoming the most effective foster parent for meeting the child’s needs.  We provide ongoing training and support as a part of our commitment to you and the children we serve.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR FAMILY

We commit that we will provide you the skills, support andFoster Care education you need to answer your calling to becoming a foster parent.  Through our initial intensive and ongoing trainings we are your team to create successful lives with these children.  We provide 24 hour support through a treatment manager, respite care, per diem reimbursement, opportunity to network with other foster families and inclusion in the foster child’s treatment plan.  We act as a liaison with community services, schools and other agencies.
