JusticeWorks Behavioral Care was recently awarded a Child Placing Agency license by the Department of Social Services. Many thanks to Executive Director, Tomeika Martin, and TFC Program Director Nikita Davis for their hard work making this service a reality. We are pleased to offer therapeutic foster care giving some of South Carolina’s most vulnerable children a place of safety and well-being which ultimately leads to permanency.
Our Therapeutic Foster Care program is an enhanced level of service provided in a home setting. Children receiving Therapeutic Foster Care services have been identified as having moderate to severe mental health issues and require consistency, structure, and stability to help them excel in the home, school, and community environments.
Therapeutic Foster Care services are provided by highly trained foster parents with the support of JusticeWorks’ clinical staff. We assist foster parents in having a long-term strategy for the betterment of the child, or children, and provide them with skills to deal with daily challenges. JWBC supports our TFC parents through training, 24/7 phone or on-site consultation, respite relief when necessary and monthly support groups.
We are excited about the opportunity to offer this service throughout South Carolina. We have begun recruiting foster families in the Columbia and Florence areas. Like all of our other programs our goal is to be the premier provider and to achieve positive outcomes.
