Treatment Foster Care and Adoption
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.
The goals of Treatment Foster Care are to offer special-needs youth the opportunity to deal with the issues that resulted in placement. The objective is to enhance social functioning through teaching appropriate skills in social interaction, learning, working and problem solving and to return home with their family.
Adriel believes that change and growth in youth can take place through a well-rounded team approach. Foster parents are a vital part of the treatment team. Foster care caseworkers visit foster homes regularly to discuss issues of mutual concern and to provide support. The staff therapists and psychiatrist also have ongoing communication with foster parents to provide insight to the cause and treatment of the youth’s emotional and psychological needs.
Who are the youth?
Adriel's Foster Care Program serves youth without regard to age, race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin, or handicap (within a foster home's ability to care for the youth). We serve children age birth to 21 and work on adoption if return to family is not possible. Read more about our adoption services.
