GENERAL AND SPECIALIZED FOSTER CARE
Children in these programs have been raised in either normal, well-functioning homes, but for reasons beyond their control and the control of their families, foster care placement is needed, or they have suffered the effects of abuse and neglect but are still resilient enough to function normally. They need more support and guidance than the average child, but do not suffer from chronic/severe physical or mental health issues.
ENHANCED FOSTER CARE
Children in this program tend to exhibit more challenging behaviors, usually resulting from a difficult home life. The program is divided into two levels depending upon the severity of the presenting behaviors and the amount of interventions required to help modify the behaviors.
MEDICAL FOSTER CARE
There are four levels of Medical Foster Care that are provided. These services are ordered by physicians and carried out according to each child’s Individual Service Plan which is also approved by the child’s physician. Medical conditions range from chronic, but mild, medical diseases such as diabetes or asthma to severe medical diagnoses such as terminal diseases that require intensive care for many hours of each day.
