Looking for a Career Change? Become a Professional Parent!
We are looking for parents with extraordinary skills.
Consider the child who has experienced unimaginable trauma. Consider the pain of moving from one placement to another, often to different psychiatric hospitals and treatment centers far from home. Special care is required to work with higher needs children so they can heal. And that's where Professional Home-Based Care (PHBC) comes in.
On any given day there are over 1400 children in foster care in region 3B (Tarrant, Parker, Palo Pinto, Hood, Erath, Somervell, Johnson). Approximately 5% of these children qualify for Professional Home-Based Care and have been unable to receive the services needed in a family-based setting.
Introducing Professional Home-Based Care (PHBC)
PHBC is a short-term, 9-12 month, intensive, family-based level of care. PHBC is intended to be effective at stabilizing some of the most challenging children in the foster care system, preparing them to move into a forever family. Professional Home-Based Care will give you the opportunity to be equipped to meet a child's emotional and behavioral needs. You will be helping a child heal and grow. You will be equipping them with the skills and tools necessary for them to manage the impact of their histories and circumstances.
What are the advantages of being a PHBC Foster Parent?
As a professional foster parent, you will participate in an enhanced training program to prepare you for the challenge. Children can come to amazing levels of healing when their needs are met by creative, consistent, and committed caregivers.
