Therapeutic Foster Care

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is a high level of foster care that is provided to children who have experienced trauma and are in need of a home. TFC serves children between the ages of 6 and 17 years old needing a foster care placement to offer stability and security because their biological families are unable to fully provide for them.

Family and Children’s Aid approves homes for Foster/Adoptive Care and Short-Term Respite Care. FCA places these children within a safe, supportive and nurturing family environment that offers a child the greatest chance of success.

FCA Foster Care families receive comprehensive training and 24/7 support to help manage a child successfully. We utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to treatment that values the child’s unique potential, emphasizing innovative programming, teamwork, and clinical excellence. A Therapeutic Foster Parent is part of the child’s team of professionals who are working together to help a child succeed.
