“Providing Services for
Children and Families since 1965”
 

SPECIALIZED FOSTER CARE

the first choice when:
* youth are awaiting an adoptive placement
* youth are in temporary care, and with the family, working toward reunification
* youth do not exhibit marked emotional problems


Emphasis
This program service provides an environment for the child to transition to a more permanent situation, either through reunification with the family, or through adoption. For reunification, Specialized Foster Care allows the Family and the Child to work through the issues that required removal from the family setting, typically, dependency and neglect issues. Licensed Social Workers and trained foster parents work as part of a team to identify and deal with issues that keep families apart. For adoption, trained assessors help to identify, train and provide support to prospective adoptive parents to assure a true permanent placement for the child.

Service Highlights
* ability to provide clinical assessments
* develop an Individual Service Plan within 30 days
* minimum weekly on-site visits by professional staff
* regular, detailed reporting of progress toward stated outcomes
