About Therapeutic Foster Care

What is Therapeutic Foster Care?​

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is specialized care provided in a foster home setting for children diagnosed with special psychological, social, behavioral and emotional needs originating from abuse and neglect. The children referred to us have special needs that require more intensive, therapeutic services than are found in traditional foster care settings.

As a TFC foster parent you assume the primary responsibility for providing a safe and loving environment while implementing in-home treatment strategies for children and youth. TFC parents provide emotional support and advice while working together as a treatment team to help the child reach their greatest potential.
