Ways to Foster/Proctor
Proctor parents, also referred to as professional parents, are single individuals or married couples who provide care to children placed in their home.
Proctor parents provide a home family environment, nutritious meals, companionship, guidance, and physical, social, and emotional care.
Proctor care may be short term or for several years, depending upon the child's needs and his/her family.
Treatment Foster Parent
Treatment foster care (TFC), also known as therapeutic foster care, is out-of-home care by foster parents for children and adolescents with significant emotional, behavioral, medical, or social needs.
Therapeutic foster/proctor parents provide a highly structured home environment as an alternative to residential treatment facilities.
*Approved by Together Facing The Challenge. With the support of a clinical team, QYS provides treatment foster care.

Respite Care Provider
Are you interested in foster care but not ready to commit to 24/7? Respite care could be for you!
Respite care is planned or can be temporary emergency care to give foster parents a break.
Respite programs provide planned short-term and time-limited breaks for families.
Respite care providers follow the same certification process as Foster/Proctor parents.
