Treatment Foster Care offers community-based, family-centered alternative placement for children and youth who are court ordered into out of home care. The My Home, Your Home Treatment Foster Care program serves children who have significant treatment needs (such as medically needy, emotional and behavior issues and/or exhibit developmental delays). These children have not been able to have their extensive care needs met in a conventional foster care setting and are in need of a higher level of care. The program recruits, trains and supports committed foster families. The program focuses on services that are collaborative and team oriented to achieve the goals in the permanency plan, assuring that the best interest of the child/youth is served while respecting the integrity of the family when the goal is reunification.
