Foster Care Select, a program of Centerstone, is a child-placing agency which promotes providing care of the highest quality to foster children with special needs by:

 

  • Offering trainings to increase the skill level of foster parents.
  • Addressing the foster child’s individual treatment needs through therapeutic interventions such as individual and family therapy, medication management, and daily living skill training.
  • Providing in-home support to foster parents, and crisis intervention services for children in our homes.

Therapeutic Foster Care, also known as Treatment Foster Care, is a unique model of care that combines the best elements of family living with needed therapy. Children with special needs receive the structure and treatment they need in the nurturing and stable environment of a family home.

Family Support Specialists, treatment foster parents and other professionals work as a team to develop a treatment plan for each child. This innovative model of providing foster care services to children and their families incorporates therapeutic interventions with a permanency planning approach for each child. Treatment foster parents receive intensive support, consultation and training by program staff.

The children in Therapeutic Foster Care range in age from infancy to 21 years. Some have emotional and behavioral problems or special medical needs. Others have mental retardation, seizure disorders, learning disabilities or problems stemming from chronic abuse or trauma. They need caregivers who can meet their physical, medical and emotional needs and help them learn to trust and form healthy relationships. They need to be part of a loving family.

The qualified professional staff of Foster Care Select offers a wide range of services, according to individual and community needs. We recognize the special needs of children placed in all types of foster care and the people who care for them. Our goal is to provide foster parents and caregivers with the skills they need to help develop healthy, happy children.
