The WATCH approach is unique in that our staff members work to support, the foster child, the child's biological family, as well as the Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) family. The TFC team builds therapeutic relationships with each family and works alongside them to incorporate a positive, flexible, and strengths-based approach.
WATCH strongly supports its foster families by providing them with:
- High value and respect
- Pre-service and ongoing trainings
- Clinical support
- In-home weekly visits from TFC staff
- 24 hour/7 day emergency on-call assistance
- Crisis support
- Up to 14 days per year of respite support
- Generous monthly reimbursement rate
WATCH views its TFC families as an invaluable part of a treatment team. This means that the foster family’s input, observations, and insight are crucial and valued by the WATCH team members.
WATCH Parents Needed
We are always looking for caring people to provide Therapeutic Foster Care (TFC) to children with emotional and/or behavioral needs. TFC parents provide not only basic care to a child, but also must provide emotional healing and behavioral support. TFC parents assist a child in learning how to live in a healthy family environment and how to become an active member of the community. If you are interested in learning more, please call 479-629-0285 today! WATCH is an EOE.
Locations: Crawford, Franklin, Logan, Polk, Scott & Sebastian counties in Arkansas
Our Respite Care program provides a short-term, temporary break for families that have children with emotional or behavioral needs.
* Respite Care can consist of a day, overnight, or a weekend.
