Treatment Foster Care

Treatment foster care is 24-hour care provided by licensed foster parents for children who cannot live with their parents due to unsafe, or other circumstances. Generally, placement in foster care is temporary and intended to give the child’s family time to make necessary changes, so that the child can live safely in his or her home. Most children in foster care return home to their families. When children cannot return home, they find placement with relatives, adoption, or other alternatives. Our program serves children between birth to 18 years of age.
