Benefits and Training for Foster Parents

Ongoing Support for Foster Parents
Treatment foster parenting requires structured days and ongoing annual training for foster parents to meet a continuing education requirement. We provide foster parents with 24-hour support, methods of training to manage aggressive behavior, and additional monthly training sessions to meet the specific needs of the foster child.
Child Placement and Stays
The length of time a foster child stays with a foster parent varies depending on their individual needs. Short-term foster care typically lasts around 40 days, while treatment foster care lasts an average of 18 months. The type of behaviors exhibited by the children is dependent on their history, which can include traumatic experiences and abusive situations.
Commitment to Family Connections
We are committed to ensuring that youth maintain positive and permanent connections with their biological families and communities. Foster children still have contact with their biological family through phone calls, visitation, and/or home visits.
