 CT CB MTFC (MULTIDIMENSIONAL TREATMENT FOSTER CARE) - DCF

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Multi-Dimensional Treatment Foster Care Program (MTFC) is an evidence based program that provides short-term, specialized foster care for children with emotional and behavioral challenges ages 12-17. The goal is to recruit, train and approve skilled specialized foster families to provide a stabilized and structured environment to maintain children in the community with the intent to return the child home to an identified aftercare resource. While in MTFC, each child receives intensive individual counseling and skills training. The foster family acts as part of the treatment team, working directly with the youth and the MTFC team to decrease identified barriers to reunification. Simultaneously, a family therapist works with the biological family or other identified aftercare resource to prepare them for the youth’s return home. MTFC provides the foster family with 24 hour support, weekly support groups and ongoing training. The expected length of stay within the program is 6-9 months.
