THERAPEUTIC FOSTER CARE (TFC)
What is Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC)?
TFC is a powerful and unique model of care that provides children with a combination of the best elements of traditional foster care and residential treatment centers. In TFC, the positive aspects of a nurturing and therapeutic family environment are combined with active and structured treatment. TFC provides a clinically-effective and affordable way to provide individualized and intensive treatment for children and adolescents.
What are the goals of Choices For Life TFC Program?
- Safety – Ensure the safety and well-being of the child.
- Stabilization – Secure the child in a steady family-type setting.
- Growth – Treat the child’s emotional, behavioral and medical problems in a specially trained foster home.
How do we achieve our goals?
Treatment families, who are certified as Treatment Parent Specialists (TPS), in partnership with Choices For Life, provide in-home basic living and social skills development on a daily basis. Children in the TFC environment receive counseling services from our qualified staff. Each child receives individual and family counseling, as well as periodic group counseling sessions. This trauma-informed treatment model gives children a chance to be a part of a strong and stable family, develop life skills, and move towards having positive, healthy relations in their lives.
Choices For Life TFC involves planned therapeutic intervention that promotes healthy development of the child. The treatment parents are trained professionals that provide the child with experiences and conditions that promote healthy, normal growth and a safe environment in which that growth can thrive.
