Youth of all ages enter foster care for many different reasons, and as such, their needs can be varied. Some children and teens may be experiencing behavioral challenges or working through past traumas. Some may speak different languages, embrace different cultures, or identify as LGBTQ+.
Differences aside, at the end of the day these youth all need a stable, nurturing home environment that supports the whole person: physically, emotionally, mentally, and behaviorally.
How we support foster youth.
Treatment Foster Care
Treatment Foster Care, also known as “Therapeutic Foster Care,” provides a safe, stable, and supportive home where youth can heal, thrive, and reach their potential until being reunited with their natural family or a permanent placement can be arranged.
Respite Foster Care
Respite Foster Care provides periodic weekend or short-term care (30 days or less) to foster youth who are being served full time by another BCC TFC family.
How you can support foster youth.
We are always looking for loving families who are able to meet the varied needs of our foster youth. We invite you to learn more about our treatment foster care program and how your home could make a meaningful difference in a young person’s life.
Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education (PRIDE):
PRIDE pre-service training will assist you in developing an understanding of all aspects of what you may encounter in serving a youth in treatment foster care, especially the trauma and its impact on childhood development.
Together Facing the Challenge (TFTC):
TFTC is an evidence-based program providing you with strategies for youth who display challenging behaviors while encouraging parental growth and confidence along the TFC journey.
