Help a Child Become a Hero, not a Statistic
Multi-Dimensional Foster Care Treatment (MTFC) is different from standard foster parenting in that it is shorter term, and provides support for families willing to offer their homes to children with challenging behaviors. They may have a history of behavior problems such as law violations, school failure, aggression, drug or alcohol use, poor peer relations, poor coping and social skills, low self esteem, or foster care placements that did not work out.
This six-to-nine-month program helps children decrease negative behaviors and discover new found success at home, in school, and in their communities. MTFC uses a unique teamwork approach with the goal of reuniting children with their families within a short period of time. Through this program, a caring team helps these children to develop positive social behaviors, life skills, and higher self-esteem so that they can better adjust to his family, community, and peers.
How it Works
Children (ages 7-17) exhibiting challenging behaviors are supported by their foster family, MTFC Program Supervisor, an individual therapist, and an individual skills coach. They are consistently supervised as they work on their individualized plan each day. The team measures their progress and helps them transition through the program’s points and level system.
