Corporate Foster Care

Programming is designed to target:

  • High behavioral management needs
  • Those with interrupted placement histories
  • Those needing crisis on-call support

Solutions provides 24-hour care in individual and small group community settings and is licensed under foster care regulations. Arrangements are generally made through a service agreement with the county case manager.


Independent Living Services (ILS)

Independent living skills training is provided through a service agreement by the county case manager. Training focuses on building skills and managing barriers to successful community placement. ILS can be used as a bridge to step down from corporate foster care in order to maximize community independence. Solutions actively works to ensure the least restrictive placement setting possible.
