Foster A Child

Foster One Program Foster Parents change lives… Both the children’s and their own.

What is the Foster One Program?

The Foster One Program is a short-term treatment program based on the Treatment Foster Care Program (TFCO) that gives a child the opportunity to grow and learn positive behavior techniques in a home environment instead of a residential facility or group home. The treatment team, which includes Foster One foster parents, work together to deliver consistent expectations, structure, and guidance as well as patience and kindness. Foster One is evidence-based with proven positive outcomes.

Virtual information sessions are being held on the first Tuesday of the month at noon and 6:30 pm.

Treatment Foster Care Oregon (TFCO) is an alternative to residential care for children with emotional and behavioral challenges and their families. Currently, our TFCO program is being piloted in the Greater Capital Region as the Foster One Program, with plans to expand to other areas in NYS upon successful implementation. The goal of TFCO is to provide higher-need children with comprehensive services and support in a foster home environment rather than residential care so they can make a safe and successful transition to permanency resources.


We can help children who need a little extra love and support. This program is available in the Greater Capital Region only. Please contact us today to find out more about this wonderful program.
