INTENSIVE FOSTER CARE
We Need Your Help CFP is looking for caring, responsible individuals and families to provide safe, healthy, supportive homes for children and adolescents in need of a stable family setting. Our Intensive Foster Care Program works with youth in the custody of the state of Massachusetts. When you join the Intensive Foster Care team you are accepting the duty of meeting the needs of children and adolescents who struggle with behavioral issues and/or a history of abuse or neglect. We are in need of people to provide a home every child so deserves.
Intensive Foster Care parents receive MAPP (Massachusetts Approach to Partnerships in Parenting) training and participate in the homestudy process to ready their home for the placement of a child/ren. As a CFP foster parent you receive the ongoing support and training including a weekly visit from your assigned social worker and a daily stipend to cover the needs of the child/ren placed in your home.
You don’t need to be married or have previous parenting experience to be a foster parent. You simply need to have an open heart, open mind and open home. If you are patient and understanding you may be the right person for this rewarding challenge.
