Integrated Therapeutic Foster Care

Father with boysIntegrated Therapeutic Foster Care is treatment that is designed not only to treat your child’s behavior symptoms, but also designed to look at all of the barriers to recovery that your child is facing. We not only help you and your child work through the emotional and behavioral struggles but we look at other environmental factors as well including health and overall well-being. Our Foster Homes are safe places where children can examine the causes for their struggles and deal with them in a structured way.

Your family may be posed with extreme challenges and it may be necessary to place your child in our Integrated Therapeutic Foster Care program. This doesn’t mean you’ve failed; it simply means your child needs more intensive help than you can give on your own. Therapeutic foster care is considered the least restrictive form of out-of-home therapeutic placement for children with severe emotional disorders. Care is delivered in private homes with foster parents we train. It is often one of the most effective ways to treat severe emotional and behavioral disorders so that your child can return to your home.

Since 1998, Centerstone Family Centered Services has been providing safe, supportive and culturally sensitive foster homes which meet the emotional, physical, and social needs of our clients. At Centerstone, foster care is viewed as a temporary, stepping-stone solution to help a child reach permanency. Permanency means a child finds their forever home, either by reuniting with their birth families or abeing prepared for transition to adult living.

We provide excellent service and support not only to the youth that are in our program but also to the families that care for them. Support is available in the form of case managers and in-home therapists who are available to support children and foster parents 24/7. All our foster parents receive extensive training, and we provide continuing education for our families.
