Foster Care Services

CampaignFB Ad 20154

TFI Family Services is licensed as a child placing organization, providing several levels of foster care services.

A child is placed in the state’s care when a court determines the child’s home life is dangerous, inappropriate, unhealthy or when the child’s behavior cannot be managed at home. Many children have experienced lives of abuse and/or neglect.

Right now, there are children in need of a home and a family who will give them a safe and nurturing environment where they can grow. TFI believes that whenever possible, a child should be with their natural family. When that is not possible, we help provide foster families for the children in our care.

As a foster parent, you work together with child welfare professionals to ensure the children placed in your home have a chance to blossom as a healthy, well-adjusted member of the community. Opening your heart and home as a foster care family isn’t always easy, but families often say it is one of the most rewarding experiences in their lives.

Specialized support

TFI Family Services developed a model of support for foster care families founded on the principle that a foster family would have their own case manager to support them. The foster family’s case manager then works in coordination with the child’s case worker.  Our foster care families have a live voice to talk to even if it is 2 a.m. on a weekend or holiday. TFI also offers monthly newsletters and support meetings, holiday parties, summer picnics, training opportunities and annual retreats.
