Intensive Services Foster Care

Children First offers an Intensive Services Foster Care program in Tehama, Shasta, and Siskiyou Counties. An ISFC home is an alternative to group-based residential treatment or psychiatric hospitalization for children 5-18 years of age who require services greater than general foster care. Eligible children have the following challenges: multiple placements, serious emotional/behavioral issues, possible group home placements or are being stepped-down from a group home environment.

How can you get involved? Do you or someone you know have experience working with abused/neglected children? Do you know someone who is eager to learn and develop new skills on an ongoing basis? Are you resilient, ready to view yourself as members of our “treatment team” and understand the value of parenting flexibility to best serve each child? Perhaps that someone is you.
