Therapeutic Foster Care

Why should I foster a child?

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.

What are the benefits of fostering a child through Centerstone?

At Centerstone, our foster care team carefully chooses families based on the needs of the children referred to our program. Our screening process is designed to ensure that you are equipped to provide a safe and nurturing environment for a child to thrive.

Some children may have experienced trauma, and as a result, they may find it difficult to cope in their new home. For these families, we provide case management and therapy services to assist you and your foster child.

We also train our staff and families to work with the “whole child,” with a focus on sleep, diet and exercise. By helping children make healthy choices, their chances of success dramatically increase.

No matter what their needs, every child in our foster care family program receives essential care. We even offer counseling sessions at our clinics if you or your foster child need it. Centerstone’s therapists are available for in-home visits to help manage complex issues if they ever come up.
