Become a Treatment Foster Parent
CRISIS PHONE NUMBER:
Treatment Foster Care (TFC) is a community based service that is aimed to improve and enhance the emotional, physical and behavioral health of the youth served. Youth can receive TFC services up to the age of 21. In TFC, foster parents are considered the primary agent of change. They are trained and given support to implement key elements of treatment in the context of family and community life, while supporting the goals of discharge planning for children in their care.
TFC Parents partner closely with a treatment team and work toward meeting established treatment goals that include a permanent living situation which may be living at home with adoptive parents, long-term foster care or independent living.
Services are designed to work with the patient’s individual needs with the goal of keeping them in the community and prevent placement in a more restrictive setting or support the patient in returning from a more restrictive setting as they transition home.
