Therapeutic Foster Care
The Children’s Aid Society’s Therapeutic Foster Care Program provides specialized foster care and therapeutic services to youngsters with emotional and behavioral problems. While some of these children have developmental disabilities, others are suffering the repercussions of homelessness, abuse or neglect. A social worker and socio-therapist work closely with foster parents, training them to care for these children and supervising the implementation of an appropriate service plan to deal with their behavior.
Therapeutic foster parents demonstrate tremendous commitment to these special children. They are required to keep a log of daily events, undergo intense training and remain in regular contact with our staff. Children’s Aid has achieved a phenomenal adoption rate with these fragile children.
Therapeutic foster homes are provided in Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island.
