Our foster caregivers are provided with the training and support necessary to care for these children, many of whom have special needs like Autism.
Child and Family Solutions utilizes a strength based, client centered approach to addressing the behavioral health concerns of children, adolescents and their families. Child and Family Solutions offers a number of community based and in home services to help you and your family bounce back from emotional and behavioral issues associated with childhood and adolescence using skilled counselors, social workers, and clinicians.
A Treatment Foster Care Success Story That Changed The Lives of Two Siblings
Two non-traditional parents came to Homes For Kids with the intention of becoming Foster Caregivers. After they became certified, they accepted a brother and sister into their home, Angel, age 6 and Jacob, age 7. Their biological Mother abandoned them and they were living with their Father who was abusive. They had not been enrolled in school, had no running water and had severe hygiene issues. As a result, both children had behavioral problems, abandonment issues, and inappropriate social behaviors. They were taken into custody by Children’s Services. After living in several foster homes, Angel and Jacob were enrolled in Homes for Kids Treatment Foster Care program and matched to their foster caregivers.
Their Foster Caregiver Wade stated, “Due to the training Homes for Kids provided to us, we were able to give these children the structure, positive reinforcement, and understanding they needed to help them through their trauma and adjustment to normal life. Angel and Jacob had been so socially backwards because they were never given the opportunity to enjoy normal experiences like having a birthday party or going to a fair.” Now two years later, the children have normalized behaviors, have integrated socially, are both honor roll students, and have acclimated to a healthy home environment. Their Foster Caregivers decided to adopt them because, “they can’t imagine life without them.”

It was great that the staff came to my home and came to appointments with me. The staff was so understanding and supportive” – Mom of a 9-year-old boy.
