Therapeutic Foster Care

Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch – Community Based Services offers Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) to youth and families across the state of Montana. Home Support is funded by Healthy Montana Kids Plus – Medicaid and Healthy Montana Kids – Extended.

What is the main goal of Therapeutic Foster Care?
The main goal of TFC is to provide youth with a safe, nurturing home either long term or temporarily. Each YBGR therapeutic foster family is assigned a Treatment Manager who makes weekly home visits to support youth in their care. Typically, the whole family participates in these home visits.
