Treatment Foster Care
The Village Network provides treatment foster care for 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 than regular, or “traditional” foster care placements provide. It is distinct in that the children assigned to treatment foster care, demonstrate more significant emotional, psychological, behavioral, and/or health challenges based on trauma and/or abuse, and require clinical expertise and guidance.
We Support Foster Parents
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. The Village Network trains, supports and supervises foster parents in order to provide sound treatment based upon the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics and Collaborative Problem Solving. Treatment 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.
Qualified, Certified Staff
For more than 70 years, The Village Network has helped at-risk boys and girls, healing generations of troubled and abused youth and moving them to independent, productive lives. Each of our treatment foster care network teams is comprised of Masters level therapists, case managers, psychiatrists and support staff, who conduct weekly foster parent advocacy meetings to provide the best and most effective treatment for the children in our care.
