NAFI Therapeutic Foster Care Programming

Services Provided: NAFI NY provides specialized foster care and therapeutic services to youth with mental health and behavioral issues. While a number of these children have developmental disabilities, many are dealing with the consequences of abuse, neglect and other various traumas. The program uses a wraparound approach to services, with the specially trained foster parents acting as the foundation of the youth’s treatment team. Therapists and case managers work side-by-side with the caregivers to support and provide treatment to the child in care. Each child is engaged a part of their own service planning, in line with NAFI’s philosophy that change happens when individuals are given a voice in their treatment.  NAFI NY’s therapeutic foster parents must complete an intense course of specialized training before being approved as potential foster parents to our consumers. The level of care provided and the skills and commitment shown by these families underscores just how valuable they are to the success of our program. NAFI currently has Therapeutic Foster Care homes in the following areas: Albany County, Clinton County, Columbia County, Orange County and Westchester County.  NAFI-NY’s Therapeutic Foster Care Programming is actively seeking professional foster parents, mentors, and volunteers.
