Looking to make a difference in a child’s life? Look no further than Choices for Life Foster Care! You can make a difference here. In addition to traditional foster care, we also offer Therapeutic Foster Care and Intensive Treatment Family Care. These programs are designed to provide specialized support and care for children who have experienced trauma or have behavioral health needs. Our therapeutic foster care program, TFC, provides additional training and support to foster parents to help them understand and meet the unique needs of children who have experienced trauma. This includes training on trauma-informed care, behavior management techniques, and strategies for building strong relationships with children. Our Intensive Treatment Family Care program, ITFC, is designed for children with more complex behavioral health needs. This program provides additional support to foster families, including access to a licensed therapist and a 24/7 crisis line for emergencies. Becoming a foster parent is a huge responsibility, but it is also the most rewarding experiences you can have. At Choices for Life Foster Care, we are committed to providing high-quality care to every child in our program. Contact us today to learn more about our traditional, TFC, and ITFC programs, and how you can make a difference in the life of a child in need.
