SERVICES AND CAPABILITIES

California Foster Families, Inc. operates as a therapeutic foster care agency and treatment program. We do a careful assessment of the child and family’s vulnerabilities, deficits, capacities and their strengths. This may involve observation and clinical interviews and formal psychiatric, psychological and education evaluations. Treatment is focused on skill building and meeting the concrete needs of the children in our care. Treatment also focuses on the child as well as the family and the community. Our intervention may initially be aimed at preventing the need for a more restrictive intervention or simply maintenance until the family system is restored
