Programs: Many children who are placed in Treatment Foster Care are troubled. Often abused or neglected, they are more difficult, requiring closer supervision and consistent, practiced care. What distinguishes VHBG's Treatment Foster Care program from others is the strength of the Teaching-Family Model on which training is based. The T-F Model is strength-based, with an emphasis on teaching social skills. It is also evidenced-based, independently-evaluated and one of only 2 models of care recommended by the APA. VHBG is credentialed by the Teaching-Family Association and is the only training site for the T-F Model in Virginia.
Both extensive training, including a 30-hour course and continual inservice, and round-the-clock personal assistance from a trained professional they know are key factors in assuring that VHBG Foster Parents have the right tools to be effective and keep children in the safest and most consistent family possible.

I was fourteen and my brother four when we entered the Home sixty years ago. It was saving lives then and it still does. It gave us a life without strife, hunger or cold. It gave us comfort and guidance when we most needed it.
