Therapeutic Foster Care Training in North Carolina

Our agency is one of the few agencies in the state to provide therapeutic foster care parenting classes taught by a trainer who is also a therapeutic foster care parent. Because our licensed trainer has first hand experience in working with a child who requires special care, her understanding of the quality of care necessary for the therapeutic foster care relationship is of extreme value to foster parents, the children as well as our agency.

We want the children as well as the families who foster them to have the support they need in order to make this experience mutually rewarding. To that end, we help prospective foster families understand their role in the fostering relationship as well as provide the necessary tools, assistance and education for successful foster parenting.
