Why be a Foster Parent with Phoenix Homes of Tennessee?
Foster parenting is a rewarding and significant way to help a child in need. Phoenix Homes of TN is committed to making you successful. Our primary focus is to support and empower the foster family to be the primary treatment agent in the child’s life. Through specialized training and ongoing support, we will assist the family in overcoming barriers that prohibit both the child's development and the ongoing operation of a positive family system.
A Family Treatment Coordinator supports every foster family. The FTC partners with the family to develop support services such as in-home counseling, mentoring, tutoring, and respite and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, when assistance, support, direction, and advocacy are needed. All these services are paid for by Phoenix Homes of TN. Additionally, each Family Treatment Coordinator has a limited caseload of 8-10 families, to ensure each family receives the attention and support needed.
There are many agencies in Tennessee providing treatment foster care. We believe that it is important that your family make a thoughtful, informed decision about providing foster care and selecting an agency. Please call us for more information and to set a meeting with Phoenix staff to help you have the information you need to make an excellent decision for your family.
