Southern Christian Services for Children and Youth, Inc. offers an array of permanency services through the Adoption and Foster Care Program. These services are operated statewide and serve vulnerable children with special needs and foster and adoptive families
Children ages 6 – 18 who have special needs, are part of a sibling group, or have experienced abuse and neglect are placed in loving homes with families who are specially trained to meet their needs. Our belief is that every child deserves the permanency of a “forever family.”
The Partners in Permanency Program (PIP) offers families a full range of services designed to meet the unique needs of adoptive and foster families. Services include parenting training, crisis intervention, case management, family support groups, information and referral, respite care, a lending library and newsletter, and a “warm line” that provides connections to support services.
Therapeutic Foster Care is a community based approach to caring for children and youth with emotional and behavioral problems in the least restrictive environment. This service seeks to combine elements of residential treatment within the foster family environment.
