Some children come to Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) with significant physical health, behavioral, developmental, and mental health needs. Fortunately, LCCS is among a select group of Ohio counties that maintains a group of “Treatment” foster parents with specialized skills and training that help these youth succeed close to home.

Who are the Youth in Treatment Foster Care?

Youth who require Treatment-level care have generally experienced significant trauma. Many present challenging behaviors. They may have developmental disabilities or mental health concerns. Some may be minor mothers and need guidance not available in their own families. All benefit from the enhanced structure that Treatment care provides, while at the same time, remaining in the community.

Who can be a Treatment Caregiver?

Treatment foster parents must have a minimum of two years of family foster care experience, and have completed a Treatment-specific training program. Prospective Treatment foster parents with specialized professional skills in areas such as nursing, developmental disabilities, Autism, mental health, and other related fields, may be exempt from the training requirement. Alternatively, if you have experience in parenting a child with developmental delays or special medical needs, we may be able to waive the requirement for two years of family foster care experience and require only that you complete the foster care preservice training program.  

You’ll be Supported

The youth’s “treatment team” — his or her caseworker, your Treatment foster caseworker, and any service providers, meet regularly to discuss the youth’s progress. LCCS Treatment foster parents are a tight knit group and support each other through networking, advice, and respite.
