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

Our Foster Care program is made up of servant hearted individuals and families who are willing to provide a stable and loving home for children from birth to 21 years old. The Foster Care staff provides training, support, and resources to each family through out the fostering process.

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.

MCH is always looking for servant hearted foster parents who will provide stable and loving homes for our children. You can make a difference in the lives of children by opening your heart and home to them! Any home can be a Methodist Children’s Home!
