The Multidimensional Treatment (MT) Program is searching for individuals interested in being foster parents to a teen in need. 

Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC) is an evidenced-based model of foster care designed for youth ages 12-17 who are working to overcome emotional and behavioral issues.  The goal of this model is provide a structured and supportive environment to stabilize teens in a family setting and prepare them for reunification with their parents or other permanent caregivers. 

MT Foster Parents provide care for just one youth at a time, for usually 6-9 months at a time.  Because MT Foster Parents play such an important and active role on the treatment team, they receive excellent compensation ($525 / week) and 24 hour/7 day a week support from the program.  With the guidance of the MT Program Supervisor, MT Foster Parents implement the individualized, highly structured program for each youth to help them achieve their goal of returning home.

Must be 21 years of age, eligible to become licensed as a treatment level foster parent in the State of Maine and live within a 60-mile radius of Winthrop, Maine.  We will work with you through the licensing process.

Treatment Foster Care Parents

Treatment foster care (TFC) is a more intensive, comprehensive approach to the traditional  family foster care system.  Children ages birth to eighteen who are referred by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for TFC have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect or abandonment.  Some children have additional medical needs while others have developmental delays or disabilities.  As a result of these experiences, children often present behavioral and emotional challenges severe enough that they are most effectively addressed in TFC using a team approach. 

Treatment foster parents work in coordination with other team members, some of whom may include case managers, school personnel, therapists, psychiatry staff, birth families and DHHS case workers. Together the treatment team identifies and prioritizes the treatment goals.  The resulting treatment plan is the shared responsibility of the entire team.
