RD408 - Treatment Foster Care Services Under the Children's Services Act (CSA) - December 2015
Treatment foster care is a community-based program where services are designed to address the special needs of children. Services to the children are delivered primarily by treatment foster parents who are trained, supervised, and supported by agency staff. Treatment is primarily foster-family based and is planned and delivered by a treatment team. Treatment foster care focuses on a continuity of services, is goal-directed and results-oriented, and emphasizes permanency planning for the child in care.
