Residential Foster Care Program

Children’s Harbor Residential Foster Home Programs are licensed to provide care for 31 children who have been removed from their biological parents due to confirmed allegations of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. The Residential Sibling Program allows 24 brothers and sisters to live together in 4 family-style homes while in State custody, significantly reducing their feelings of loss and separation. The Maternity Residential Program houses 7 pregnant and parenting foster teens and their babies.
Each child that enters Children’s Harbor receives a thorough assessment and a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to his or her physical, emotional, behavioral, educational and social needs. An array of services targeted to address these individual needs is provided during their stay. From trauma-focused individual and group therapy to help children cope with the abuse and neglect they have endured; to behavioral modification and academic programs; to parenting and life-skills classes- all service activities are designed to increase the health and functioning levels of children and youth, and make a substantive difference in their lives.
