Therapeutic Foster Care Services

Caring support to help children heal and thrive

Sevita’s therapeutic foster care services help children with behavioral, emotional, and other challenges heal and thrive. The children we serve live with caring foster parents we call Mentors.

All children need to feel safe and loved. They deserve to lead full, joyful lives. Our therapeutic foster care services help them do that. Mentors foster parents give children more than just a safe home. They give them a family and the loving support they need to heal and grow.

Building bright futures

Every child’s journey is unique. That’s why we meet them and their families where they are. We see them for who they are – as people with goals and hopes for their lives. With the support of their foster parents children in our therapeutic foster care programs build skills to help them work through the challenges they face. Our team creates a support plan that helps them build a positive future, where they can grow and live well. And we’re here to support each child and their Mentor each step of the way.


Mentor Foster Care helps children overcome the challenges they face by matching them with caring foster parents. Learn more about the services we offer to children with a wide range of needs.

Healing relationships, bright futures

We believe children belong in loving families and that strong relationships are vital to their development and healing.  Our therapeutic foster care programs are based on our trauma-informed clinical model, which emphasizes positive family relationships. We help children build the healing bonds and life skills they need to have bright futures.

Shared parenting

If the goal is for the child to return home, we’re here to support that. Mentors work with a child’s whole circle of support, including family and other caregivers. They’re role models to the whole family. With help from Mentors and their support team, families build skills like communication and crisis management that lead to lasting change.
