Have you ever thought of being a foster parent, but were nervous about your ability to work with difficult youth?  
At Connections365, we provide extensive training and 24/7 on-call support so that you can be fully equipped to serve a child in need.

Having served youth and families as a child caring agency for over 30 years, our mission statement reads, “Connections365 is a Christian organization compassionately serving youth and families, providing them counseling, mentoring, skill building and education services in a safe environment, to support the development of their hope and future.”

We have an immediate need for treatment foster parents who can care for one youth in their home.  This is a pilot program for the next 14 months, after which time consideration will be made for an extension.

What you can expect:
•    Daily reimbursements whether a youth is in the home or not:
     o    When a youth is placed in the home this is approximately $116/day (approximately $3500 per month).
     o    When no youth is placed in the home (while the agency is working on a placement), treatment foster parents still receive a daily reimbursement rate of approximately $70/day (approximately $2100 per month).
•    Extensive initial training prior to youth placement and ongoing training and support.
•    Access to 24/7 on-call support.
•    A team of workers who wrap around you and the youth to facilitate successful treatment.  This minimally includes a case manager, therapist, and mentor.

If you would like more information, please contact Chris Brubaker at 503-588-5647 x103 or Debby Lute at x308.
