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.

VHBG has been a true home for many needy children and teenagers throughout its existence. These young men and women have gone on to lead very productive lives and have been community leaders.
The staff truly cares for and about our children and I am most proud to have been part of this organization for over 35 years.
