Family Care for Children and Youth - Dunmore - Family Based Services
Our Family Based Services provide a process of specialized foster family care for children and youth whose needs exceed the coping capacity of the traditional foster home. Such children are often sent to group homes or institutions, which do not provide family living experiences. As a vital alternative, a foster family is specially selected and trained to deal with a child’s special needs and to help the child grow within a family.

It is the responsibility of Family Care for Children & Youth to ensure that the child or youth is living in a safe and need-fulfilling environment. Childhood and young adulthood can be difficult periods in anyone’s life, and our foster kids may come with a history of emotional and behavioral problems, difficulties in school, clashes in the community, or problems with the law. The children may have special medical needs, limited mental abilities, experienced relationship problems with their biological/legal families, or even suffered from abuse.

Family Based Services focus on the development of the child or youth in the present and in the future. Great faith is placed in the ability of the young person to move beyond past difficulties and develop a more successful way of living. The best way to help our clients to do this is to place them with specialized families.
