Therapuetic Foster Care

 

 

 

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is a specialized type of foster care geared towards children and teens who have had difficult or traumatic experiences in their life-time. As a TFC parent, you are responsible for keeping the child safe and supervised while teaching them skills to overcome their issues. TFC parents also provide love, nurturing, acceptance and encouragement. The TFC parent makes it a priority for the child to participate in community/recreational activities as well as staying connected with their friends and family while in care.

As a key part of the child’s treatment team, the TFC parent is provided specialized training as well as support and guidance from the ACPA staff.
