First Home Care believes in working to enable children, adolescents, families and adults to receive the care they need — in their homes and communities.

Therapeutic Foster Care Programming

Young girls sticking together Therapeutic foster care is the core business of First Home Care. Our highly trained families provide care and support for children and adolescents who require out-of-home placement.

Independent living/life skills development is a critical component of our TFC Program as well as biological family contact (except where expressly prohibited). We offer different levels of service tailored to meet the individual needs of the children and youth in our programs. The various levels provide progressive amounts of built-in supports designed to transition the youth and family through the treatment process.

Through highly coordinated services with the ultimate goal to return the youth to their community of origin, the program provides comprehensive, coordinated, cost-effective care in the least restrictive, most normalized environment.
