What is Therapeutic Foster Care?

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is specialized care for children and youth with special medical, psychological, social and emotional needs who can accept and respond to the close relationships within a family setting, but whose special needs require more intensive or therapeutic services than are found in traditional foster care. TFC provides youth with a family-based treatment alternative to more intensive levels of care.
