Which Foster Care Services Are Offered by
Family Foster Care (Regular Foster Care) and Kinship Certification:
We recruit, train, monitor, and license family foster homes to provide 24-hour care to children who
have been removed from their homes due to physical or emotional abuse, abandonment, or lack
of appropriate living situations.
Therapeutic Foster Care:
Our 24-hour care is designed for children with serious emotional problems who may otherwise
require institutional treatment. We recruit, license and train professional foster-care parents to
care for children for lengths of stay ranging from 30 days to over 1 year with therapeutic
interventions. Children in therapeutic foster care, often referred to as HCTC, need providers with
experience working with children who can support them emotionally and behaviorally. Providers offering this level of care receive additional training and support to assist them in the care of
children placed in their care.
Emergency Foster Care:
Rapid placement of children who have recently been removed from their primary residence. This
type of care is provided in a licensed home by providers who have flexible scheduling allowing
them to children out of crisis or in emergency situations. Often very little is known about the client
and placements happen very quickly.
This service is provided in licensed homes to give families, children, and care givers planned
breaks from their current situation. Respite is available to children in both regular and therapeutic
levels of foster care, with an ultimate goal to provide rest and relax to prevent more intensive
levels of care.
