Therapeutic Foster Care: An Overview

Thousands of children need treatment foster homes

Omni’s foster parents often tell us that being a therapeutic foster care parent is the most challenging—and most rewarding thing—they’ve ever done.

In a treatment foster care home, you provide stability and care for children who have often had traumatic experiences, may be emotionally challenged, or have special needs.

Yet you’re never alone. Omni Visions provides training, support, and guidance. All therapeutic foster parents receive financial assistance, which covers the child’s food, housing, clothing, transportation and treatment needs.

Once you complete the licensing requirements and training, you are eligible for a child or teen to be placed in your home. And while the goal of most foster placements is to return the child to their birth family, therapeutic foster care is often a step towards adoption.

Why Foster a Child?

There are many reasons to foster a child, but the number one reason is that children who have been abused and neglected need you.
