Different Styles of Care Handpicked for Each Child and Youth
Therapeutic Foster Homes
Children placed in these foster homes require the elements of everyday family living. These children are provided with wrap-around services and programs that help them meet all of their needs. Having a normal routine and integrating into the family helps children and youth meet some of their needs. The children placed in these settings are able to respond to regular consistent behavioural management interventions, such as reasonable consequences.
Specialized Foster Homes
Children placed in a staff supported foster home require intensive support and/or supervision in order to follow daily routines. The foster parents are often required to change or modify daily routines to meet the needs of the children in their care. Children and youth with special needs, emotional, behavioural, and physical needs are placed with these well supported and trained foster families. These homes are allowed a maximum of 4 high needs clients at a time. The children and youth receive a minimum of 10 hours a week of one-to-one social and skill development with a worker.
Transitional Living is a specialized foster home created for youth and young adults ages 16-21 who require skill building for independent living as well as the services offered in a Therapeutic or Specialized Foster Home. The goal is to provide a transitional period where they can become comfortable and prepared to live comfortably on their own.
