Foster Homes

Therapeutic

The therapeutic foster home provides a family setting for children who require more care and supervision than would normally be provided in a regular foster home. Due to the level of challenges these children present, the amount of 1:1 time needed for each child is greater than what would be expected for a child of his or her age.

S.A.F.E. Medical Foster Homes

The S.A.F.E. Medical home provides a family, non-institutionalized setting for children and youth who have significant medical needs, requiring more physical care and medical care than would be normally provided in other foster homes. These clients typically would progress to adult group care facilities upon reaching adulthood, but benefit from a family environment during their developmental years.
