Provide a Nurturing Home for a Child with Special Needs
Since 1997, Aspiranet’s Intensive Treatment Foster Care (ITFC) Program has placed severely emotionally disturbed children with foster families willing to care for them. These specially trained families provide a stable alternative to institutional care for children who need a home-based treatment program with enriched support services. The program supports foster parents with effective therapeutic intervention that assures each child’s treatment is goal directed, outcome specific, and behaviorally oriented. The benefit is a long-term foster home placement with intensive counseling, case management, education, and the support services needed to create a nurturing environment for children to thrive.
