PROFESSIONAL FOSTER CARE
The Professional Foster Care Program (PFC) of The Baby Fold provides the most
intense programming and supervision available within a foster care setting. The
program provides for the complex needs of children who cannot be cared for by their own families or in other less restrictive foster care programs.
PFC is an option that provides a successful alternative to group home or residential care for children with moderate to severe behavioral, emotional, social, or learning/developmental problems. The therapeutic milieu provided in PFC creates an intentional atmosphere within the home to engage each youth to change undesirable behaviors and develop skills which will help them be successful.
Our Goal: To help each child achieve full potential and permanency by providing
a structured, nurturing, normalizing environment which meets their specific and 21 years old.
Children to be served are under the age of 21 years for whom the Department is
legally responsible and it has been determined that the child is in need of
substitute care services, including Medicaid Community Mental Health and other social
and rehabilitative services, because of substantial impairment in role functioning,
as indicated by an ICD-9CM.
