Help kids with health, emotional needs: Be a therapeutic foster parent in Louisiana


BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Volunteers of America’s Reilly Center for Children and Families is on a mission to help those most in need, children who need therapeutic foster families. Therapeutic Foster Care Director Jamie Jenkins said those who step up to the plate are families that can not only handle a challenge but welcome the challenge.

Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) is a service provided by specially trained foster parents. The program’s mission is to provide care for children and adolescents whose significant emotional, behavioral, or social issues or medical needs cannot be met in their own homes or at a lower-level of care.
