What is Therapeutic Foster Care TFC?

Therapeutic Foster Care is a family-based service which allows a child to live in a temporary home with trained caregivers while receiving intensive treatment in the community for their emotional and behavioral needs. TFC offers children supportive family settings. Children live in TFC homes until their natural family can be reunited or a permanent placement can be arranged for the child.

Methodist Foster Care recruits, trains, certifies and supports a growing state-wide network of Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) families in Louisiana. Our Therapeutic Foster Care homes provide family-based care. In our TFC homes, specially-trained foster caregivers care for children in foster care.
