Specialty Foster Care
The children we serve in our Specialty Foster Care program may have intellectual and developmental disabilities or emotional and behavioral challenges, and we provide them with nurturing homes where they can thrive.
Every child is different, and our team of clinical coordinators, behavioral specialists, and therapists work with the child and their Mentor to develop an Individual Service Plan. The plan outlines goals and personalized supports which include:
- 24-hour home-based monitoring
- Therapeutic intervention
- Access to routine family and community-based activities
- Life skills development
- Medication management oversight
It’s All about Relationships
Our Specialty Foster Care program is supported by foster parents, who we call Mentors. We call them Mentors because they are more than care providers to the children we serve – they are teachers, advocates, and friends. Mentors open their homes and their hearts to the children we support. We carefully screen our Mentors and provide them with specialized skill development opportunities to ensure they are able to support the children in our program. We are with our Mentors every step of the way, providing them with 24/7 on-call support and guidance.
