County Set to Begin Therapeutic Foster Care

See what other States are doing to help support youth in foster care. Santa Barbara County in California is now attempting to meet the mental health and emotional needs of children in placements with the child's foster family. 

While traditional foster care focuses on placement, the county's Intensive Therapeutic Foster Care program will integrate placement and services to treat foster children who have mental health, emotional, behavioral, medical and social needs. These children will be placed in a family setting with trained caregivers and supported by a team of professionals.
