Specialized Therapeutic Foster Care

Make a Difference in a Child’s Life: Become a Foster Parent

Our Foster Care program provides boys and girls ages 4-17 with emotional or behavioral difficulties an opportunity to live within the community in the naturally therapeutic environment of a family. Our foster parents are trained, supervised, and supported by the Laurel Heights Specialized Foster Care Treatment Team.

Family Consultants work with the foster family, birth parents, case managers and the child to ensure that therapeutic, academic, social, and medical needs are met. Family consultants work closely with case managers and birth families to support family reunification goals. Family Consultants provide 24-hour on-call support.
