We are currently seeking therapeutic foster parents. If you are interested in finding out how you can change the life of a child, contact us at 423-673-2470.
Mountain Youth Academy’s therapeutic foster care program is designed to serve children and youth with stories of trauma and PTSD, who can accept and respond to close relationships within a family setting but whose needs require more intensive or therapeutic services than are found in traditional foster care.
Our foster parents are provided with initial and ongoing training in TN KEY (knowledge empowers you) to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to provide for a child with intensive needs.
Mountain Youth Academy’s therapeutic foster care program provides 24/7 access to case managers, as well as on-going support and crisis intervention. Our case managers are therapeutically trained to assess situations that may arise so our foster parents have a knowledgeable support system through Mountain Youth Academy.
Through our therapeutic foster care department, services needed by a child or family are provided and coordinated by our foster parents and case managers in partnership with the Department of Children’s Services (DCS).
We strive to provide a secure, stable environment for children in custody until they can reach permanency through reunification, adoption, post custody or other kinship options.
If you feel like you are able to provide for a child in need, please contact our Foster Care Services Recruiter/Trainer at 423-673-2470.
