The opioid epidemic has had a profound effect on children needing foster care. There are over 415,000 children in the foster care system nationwide. As a foster parent, you can provide a safe home for these children.
Foster care is a temporary, stepping-stone solution to help a child find a permanent home – by reuniting with their birth families or by being prepared for transition to adult living. Whether you are single, married, an empty-nester, LGBTQ, already have children at home or don’t, you can change a child’s life by welcoming them into your home.
Parenting children and teens who have a history of emotional and mental disorders can seem overwhelming, but our staff will help your family to restore a safe and healthy home environment. We will work with your family to create a treatment plan designed to treat your child’s behavior and remove barriers to recovery that your child is facing.
Our foster homes are safe places where children can examine the causes for their struggles and deal with them in a structured way.
We provide support to the youth that are in our program as well as to the families that care for them. Support is available in the form of case managers and in-home therapists who are available to support children and foster parents 24/7. All our foster parents receive extensive training and we provide continuing education for our families.
We offer Therapeutic Foster Care services in Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee.
