Therapeutic Foster Care

What does a foster family mean to you?

“It’s about my entire life, it’s not just about my childhood. I want to know that I am going to have a dad or brother as my best man in my wedding. That my children will have grandparents.” – Jonathan, 15

Therapeutic Foster Home

A Therapeutic Foster Home is a licensed and certified home to care for children with physical, emotional or behavioral difficulties. Therapeutic Foster Care is an intensive mental health service provided to a child in a family setting utilizing specially trained foster parents.
