INTENSIVE FOSTER CARE (IFC)
Communities for People, Inc. (CFP) provides foster care for children, adolescents and young adults who are in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children & Families. Our program serves clients that range from birth to their 22nd birthday in licensed intensive foster care homes throughout eastern Massachusetts. The majority of our clients are challenged with behavioral or emotional problems, medical conditions, physical handicaps or developmental delays. They may require additional services such as therapy and behavioral modification plans which are coordinated by IFC program staff who support our foster families and the children placed in their home.
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 the safe, supportive 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 children. 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 children 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.
