Treatment Foster Care

Treatment Foster Care is a community-based treatment modality that focuses on the special needs of children. We recruit, train, license, and supervise professional foster families to care for children with special needs and behavioral challenges in their homes.

La Familia-Namaste provides expert, experienced staff whose purpose is to assist and support the treatment family in meeting the child or youth's treatment needs. This is accomplished through the establishment of a therapeutic milieu in a home environment, advocacy in the community, and collaboration with therapeutic providers.

Our program's success is grounded in a collaborative multidisciplinary team approach and a strong commitment to our community partners. We utilize a relationship-based, family-focused treatment model that teaches children and youth how to live successfully in homes and communities.

Our services are rooted in current clinical research, with specific emphasis on the impact of trauma, child development, attachment and relationship-based interventions, and co-regulation.

We serve children ages 3-19 who present with severe emotional and behavioral challenges.

Primary funding for Treatment Foster Care is through Medicaid.
