FOSTER CARE - THERAPEUTIC & MEDICALLY COMPLEX

Description

Recruit, train and approve Foster homes for children with medically complex or psychiatrically involved children. Support the placement with intense case management services.


The Specialized Foster Care Program at Family & Children’s Agency provides loving homes for children with serious emotional and behavioral disorders.


The Therapeutic Foster Care Program is designed to provide homes for children who have been diagnosed with a serious psychiatric disorder. Foster parents in this program receive training and support so they can actively participate in the planning and implementation of therapeutic interventions for their foster children. Each foster parent receives 30 hours of pre-service training and a minimum of 24 hours post-approval training annually.


The Medically Complex Foster Care Program provides homes for children with complex medical needs. Foster parents in this program receive an additional 20 hours of classroom and child-specific training prior to placement. Medically complex parents are also required to obtain CPR and First Aid certification.
