Boys & Girls Haven Therapeutic Foster Care consists of a supportive network of foster homes offering kids the love and stability of a family. For many of our children, this is their first experience in a consistent and safe home – their first chance to have a childhood.
We believe that every child deserves to grow up in a safe and healthy environment they can call home. Families need strong support too. Boys & Girls Haven Therapeutic Foster Care provides foster parents with great training and is backed by the best resources in the field.
Our Foster Care Process
You’ll begin your journey toward becoming a foster parent by completing an orientation and approximately four weeks of training. Trainings help guide the way for you to successfully parent children who started life in a family that is most likely very different from yours. The pre-service training teaches these skills and helps support you as you prepare to become a foster parent. Classes are available in-person or via Zoom.
Additionally, our Therapeutic Foster Care Program is partnered with Orphan Care Alliance (OCA). Our future parents can attend OCA classes to expedite the training process. OCA offers three sessions, an orientation, and two eight hour Saturday classes that cover a 15 hour preservice requirement.
Intensive In Home Case Management, Therapy and Support
Free “trauma informed” training, a 24/7 on-call support/response team, and respite care are available to our foster families. We also offer monthly support groups for parents.
Parents receive a monthly stipend, mileage reimbursement, and a partial childcare allowance (for working parents).
The opportunity to adopt directly from the foster care system is available!
We’ve been fostering with Boys & Girls Haven for more than 21 years. No matter their age or situation, we can make a difference in these kids’ lives. That will always be our driving force.
Love does hard things, but never alone. Every child deserves to have the security of family.
We empower our foster families to meet the needs of children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
