Treatment Foster Care is a service for children, from 3 to 18 years of age, who are no longer able to stay at home with their families or need specialized care that cannot be provided in a regular foster care home. These youth have been evaluated and determined to be able to succeed in a structured treatment foster home. The length of placement varies depending on the individual plan. The Treatment Foster Care Program requires a one-year commitment and completion of an extensive training program for treatment foster care parents.
Families with children experiencing emotional problems need support in order to cope effectively with stress and to enhance family relationships. The Children’s Home Respite Care Program is the provision of temporary care to minor children with emotional disabilities, with the primary purpose of providing relief to caregivers. Certified treatment foster care parents, through The Children’s Home Treatment Foster Care program, provide temporary care of children for families needing respite. The frequency of respite is determined by an assessment, supporting the unique needs of each child and family. The program promotes participation of the child in community activities and the development of a supportive relationship for the child and his/her family.
