Children's Mental Health - Therapeutic Foster Care

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Our Therapeutic Foster Care homes are available for children, youth and adolescents with special behavioral needs in order to provide structure and safety in their lives. We have homes in Ketchikan and on Prince of Wales Island and are licensed by the State of Alaska. The foster parent cares for the youth while teaching life skills, emotional and behavioral counseling, coaching and encouraging healthy life choices. The child or youth in foster care maintains enrollment in the public school system and is expected to attend daily. Foster parents engage in regular consultation with the treatment team to treatment goals and services being provided. Foster parents receive training throughout the calendar year and clinical staff is on-call to support the foster parents twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
