Creative Alternatives now operates a Transitional Housing Placement plus Foster Care (THP+FC) program.
The THP+FC program is an option for Non Minor Dependents and provides services such as housing and financial assistance.
This option is available to adults ranging from 18-21 years old and must meet the educational or employments eligibility criteria to receive these benefits.
Creative Alternatives Foster Family Agency’s mission is to provide a healthy, safe and nurturing environment for emotionally disturbed, neglected and abused children.
Creative Alternatives is licensed by the State Department of Social Services to operate a Foster Family Agency.
Through the Foster Family Agency families are recruited, trained and certified as exclusive-use homes for the corporation.
This enables Creative Alternatives to continue care for children who have successfully completed their stay in the group home program, but who are unable for one reason or another to return to their natural homes.
