Urgent Care & ER

Treatment foster care

Sometimes difficulties keep families apart.  That’s when you can help.  Treatment foster care is home-based care for children and adolescents who have experienced significant trauma in their lives.  Connections with healthy adults in a family setting help children heal.

As a treatment foster parent, you will be a part of a professional team.  You will play a significant role in helping a child achieve their treatment goals.  And you will be supported and trained by a caring team every step of the way!
