Therapeutic Foster Boarding Home
The Therapeutic Foster Boarding Home Program (TFBH), based on Long Island, provides clinical, academic, and behavioral support services to youth placed in foster care through either Suffolk or Nassau County.
The TFBH program aims to promote healing and growth for children and adolescents facing disruption within their family unit. The TFBH program is built upon the foundation that all youth placed in foster care have the ability to overcome their challenges and are more likely to achieve success within a stable, nurturing home environment and with a healthy parent-child relationship.
The services provided by the TFBH program include, but are not limited to:
- Case management
- Academic and behavioral support
- Daily connections and independent living skill-building
- Medical case management
- Psychiatric care
Services are offered in-home and are provided by a multidisciplinary team of staff and professionals.
The primary members of the TFBH treatment team are the foster families who open their hearts and homes to youth in need. Therapeutic foster parents are provided with additional trainings and certifications. They also work closely with the TFBH staff and professionals to develop the parent-child relationship and to foster success for the children and young adults in their care.
