Foster Parenting (Snohomish County) - Change Lives.  Foster Parent.

Do you want to help a child to thrive?

You can make a difference in the life of a child by opening your caring and supportive home.  Compass Health's therapeutic foster care program serves children who have mental health difficulties, often resulting from abuse and/or neglect.  Compass Health provides specialized foster care to children and adolescents, from ages six to seventeen.  After receiving training, foster parents team up with professionals to develop and implement individual treatment plans addressing the full spectrum of the child's needs.

What is Therapeutic Foster Parenting?

Therapeutic Foster Parents make a positive impact by providing round-the-clock care for a child in their home.  The program is family-based, blending intensive therapy and family living skills.

Respite Care Foster Parents watch a child as little as one weekend a month, can add additional weekends with other children, or can schedule weekdays, if they wish.  More than a babysitter, respite care providers give parents a much needed break and help to stabilize children.

Why be a Foster Parent with Compass Health?

Compass Health foster parents are respected members of the child's treatment team who receive:

  • Non-taxable, therapeutic compensation
  • 24 hour-a-day on-call assistance from case managers and therapists
  • Mileage reimbursement
  • Excellent training with childcare provided
  • Scheduled respite (one weekend off each month)
