What is therapeutic foster care?

Therapeutic foster care is specially designed to handle the demands of children who have experienced various types of abuse and neglect.   Their emotional or behavioral problems require special attention and intervention.   Therapeutic foster parents are people who have the ability to parent the more challenging child.   Therapeutic foster parents get specialized training to help them work with these children.   They also receive support and other services from Circles of Care to aid them in caring for these children.

Circles of Care also provides foster care for basic care children that do not have any special therapeutic needs. Our basic care foster parents are still required to receive the specialized training that Therapeutic parents receive.
