Therapeutic Foster Parent

Compass Health’s therapeutic foster care program serves children who have behavioral health challenges, often resulting from abuse and/or neglect.

Help a child thrive

You can make a difference in the life of a child by opening your caring and supportive home.

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.

Another option in becoming a foster parent is providing respite care, where 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.
