Treatment Foster Care —
Case Management and Mental Health Services in a Supportive Family Setting

Woodbourne Treatment Foster Care (TFC) provides boys and girls with safe homes, clinical case management, and access to mental health services while they are living in a supportive family setting. Working closely with social workers and therapists, foster parents provide in-home care to emotionally disturbed children, ages birth to 21. Staff thoroughly trains each foster parent, then carefully matches the parent and child to ensure the best and most positive placement.

Each child sets clear benchmarks and goals, and attends a school appropriate to their needs (including Woodbourne School). We support foster parents 24/7 with services ranging from crisis management to community service coordination.
