Therapeutic Foster Care Program (TFC)
TFC places children and youth with trained foster parents and their families. Working jointly as a team, TFC parents, together with Kinark mental health professionals, child welfare workers from the Children's Aid Society, and the biological parents, develop and provide intensive treatment to children and youth in need. The program is designed for children and youth who have been placed in the care of the Children's Aid Society. Typically, these are youngsters who are experiencing a variety of social, emotional and behavioural difficulties because of abuse and/or neglect. They are children who have been identified as needing professional support and who can benefit from treatment within an alternative family setting. All TFC parents undergo an intensive training program and are supported by a professional support team.
