Young people do best when in family, or family-like environments. Due to the shortage of foster carers, when young people can’t safely stay with their parents they often end up in residential care.
Without appropriate care and support, the future for many of these kids is bleak.
“Being a treatment foster carer is a challenging, yet rewarding experience that helps to transform the life of a young person in need.”
– John (52), Treatment foster carer
