We Empower Youth And Their Families To Build Brighter Futures
At The Village Network, we believe that every child and young adult deserves to be loved and nurtured in order to live a healthy, meaningful and positive life. Our mission is to work in partnerships to empower youth and their families to build brighter futures.
Since 1946, we’ve been providing compassionate treatment to support the behavioral, physical, and emotional health of children and families affected by trauma, where the needs of each child are individually assessed and dynamic treatment plans are specifically designed to properly transition them from disruptive to permanent, stable environments.
What Is Treatment Foster Care?
Treatment Foster Care allows youth with complex needs to be raised in a family environment while receiving intensive support, supervision, and the opportunity to heal and grow. We provide family-based care for children and youth who have been removed from their homes due to childhood trauma or other unsafe conditions, and require more than the basic care, support, love and nurturing that regular, or “traditional” foster care placements provide. We train, support, and supervise caring foster parents to provide treatment aimed at healing, teaching new coping skills, and helping each child find peace and happiness.
Treatment Foster Care
We Support Our Foster Parents
The Village Network trains, supports, and supervises foster parents to provide sound treatment. Our foster care parents receive extensive initial and ongoing training, supervision, and support in the form of weekly home visits, 24-hour crisis intervention, respite care, and financial compensation. Parents provide support, consistency, and trauma-informed care to the youth in their home and provide a comprehensive approach to helping youth and their families reach their full potential. Contact us today to learn more about the benefits of becoming a foster care parent.
