Adriel's Treatment Foster Care program offers youth, in need of out-of-home placement, the opportunity to live in a home in the community. Prospective foster parents are carefully screened, licensed and trained. Training is extensive and includes extensive instruction in the evidence-based Teaching Family Model. The youth are matched to foster families by a team of social workers.
Foster families are provided with intensive support to help each youth attain goals. The objective is to encourage each youth to be as successful as possible and to reunite with family.
Adriel adoption assessors assist families in the adoption process by completing the additional work required to make adoption possible. These homes referred to as foster-to-adopt, are legally capable to provide placement for both foster and adopt children.
Some foster families decide later, after fostering for some time, that they would like to adopt. Adriel adoption assessors will assist the foster family with completing the work to make adoption possible.
Adriel’s training department offers classes in a wide range of topics. Our trainers have multiple years experience working with children and families within social service settings. They have first-hand knowledge of foster parenting, blended families, and offer expertise in program development. Individuals or groups can participate in scheduled trainings.
We can also create customized training curriculums to suit the specific needs and interests of case workers, foster parents, teachers, aides, juvenile justice workers, or mental health professionals.
