Adopting a child through foster care is one way to help a child while potentially growing your family.  Applicants complete the Resource Family Approval (RFA) process and foster the child with the intention of providing a permanent home should the child not be able to reunify with his or her birth family.

Treatment Foster Care

Treatment foster care (TFC), also called therapeutic foster care, is out-of-home care by foster parents with specialized training to care for a wide variety of children and adolescents, usually those with significant emotional, behavioral, or social issues or medical needs. Foster parents typically receive additional supports and services.
