Open your home and your heart

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) caters to the physical, emotional and social needs of children and youths in a supportive family setting until the natural family can be reunited or a permanent placement through adoption can be arranged.

The foster household is viewed as the primary treatment setting, and the foster parent(s) are trained and supported to implement the goals outlined in the child’s treatment plan. These goals include:

   • Community integration
   • Meeting the medical needs of the children
   • Eliminating inappropriate behaviors
   • Supporting the child’s educational services

These goals are carried out under the direction of a treatment team assigned to each child. The team is made up of the foster parent(s), therapeutic case manager, the child and his/her family, the state social worker and other community resource professionals. Support from all of the team members allows the child to benefit from a home environment and community-based setting while receiving intensive treatment and clinical services.

The Presbyterian Home for Children provides consistent placement opportunities for children in need of specialized services. We are looking for families from central Alabama to open their homes and hearts.
