Our Expanded Services

We know children and teens have the best opportunity to thrive when they are living with their families. If that isn’t possible, every child deserves a safe and loving temporary home surrounded by a supportive community. Our expanded treatment foster care services makes all that possible!

  • Traditional Treatment Foster Care—Services for youth needing the highest level of care due to extreme trauma in a specialized licensed foster home. Our trauma-informed team provides enhanced services and supports to help the youth successfully remain in the community while learning new coping skills processing their trauma.
  • Relative Treatment Foster Care—Services in the home for youth and their relative caregiver to teach new skills so the youth may remain in a family setting. Individualized training and increased supports to the relative caregiver and youth assist in maintaining the placement.
  • Transition Services (Aftercare)—Services provided to support a youth’s successful transition to permanency, a less intensive family home, or a community setting. This 90-day program, which may be extended on a month-by-month basis with approval if needed, helps caregivers understand and effectively manage the youth’s challenges so any gains made are not lost.
