ATA’s Foster Care Program attempts to match a child or youth with a parent or parents who can provide the structure, consistency, supervision and nurturance needed to implement an effective treatment plan. Every referred child receives a complete psychological and psychiatric workup prior to admission to the Foster Care program. These evaluations are necessary to assess course of treatment for the individual client, while in the program. The program staff will then meet to review prospective foster parent placements that would be suitable to the particular youth. A meeting is then arranged between the selected foster parent(s), the youth and the treatment team to facilitate and plan placement.
Assessment and Treatment Alternative's (ATA) Foster Family Care program is designed to provide a familial environment for children and youth who are unable to remain with their natural family. ATA's Foster Care Program is committed to providing a safe, structured, and supportive environment for those children and youth whose problems are so severe that more restrictive placement is the only other alternative.
