Sometimes children need extra support. It's great when a child can be supported in their home, but there are also children in foster care who need these supports. Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is a program that considers the needs of children and uses Medicaid services to provide increased care. TFC helps children who are likely to experience multiple placements or being in an institution, then places them with specially trained foster parents to receive these supports in a home setting. TFC offers daily care and guidance from trained foster parents to help prepare the child for reunification, a traditional foster home, or adoption. This is not a permanent family solution like adoption or guardianship.
