Therapeutic & Specialized Foster Care

Foundations for Home and Community, a non-profit organization established in 2000, provides therapeutic / specialized foster care services in Maryland.

Youth served in our program typically have abandonment, family, emotional, and behavioral issues, as well as educational and community-related concerns.

We specialize in providing an innovative approach to working with at-risk youth and their families.

We apply Systems of Care principles to create public/private community partnerships that:

Build on the strengths of the youth and their families
Teach life skills to youth and their families
Help youth and their families to develop alternative coping strategies
Support cultural diversity

Who We Serve

Foundations for Home and Community offers foster care services for youth primarily between the ages of 12-20 years old, who require out-of-home, community-based placement in a family setting.

Comprehensive, coordinated,and nurturing care is provided in the homes of trained therapeutic foster families with support, supervision, and 24-hour crisis intervention available, as needed, from mental health professionals.
