Therapeutic Foster Care
The needs of children with behavioral challenges and/or developmental disabilities cannot be effectively met by traditional foster parenting. Tragically, the children we serve typically have lived through 15 to 30 unsuccessful foster placements by the time they come into our care.
With one out of every 100 children in our nation diagnosed with autism, Creative Community Services recognizes that this population needs support as they grow into adulthood, especially once their families are no longer able to meet their special needs.
Teen Parent Connection
Our trained life coaches give one-on-one support to teens who have experienced foster care or who have a child in foster care. Life coaches engage teens during monthly group classes on advocacy, parenting education, nutrition, developmental milestones, and positive discipline. We coordinate all efforts to ensure customized, comprehensive services for parents and children.
Kinship care refers to the raising of children by family members or fictive kin who have a long-established relationship or bond with the child when their biological parents cannot adequately provide for them.
Using applied behavior analysis, SOAR works with the individual and caregivers to reduce problem behaviors while building the life skills necessary to be productive community members.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Youth who are rejected by their families may experience greater risks than other youth in care. Studies show these youth have lower self-esteem and a much greater chance of health and mental health problems as adults.
