Foster Care

Foster Care at Citrus Health Network focuses on children with emotional and behavioral needs, as well as victims of commercial sexual exploitation, and homeless LGBTQ youth.  Prospective foster parents are recruited, trained, and licensed by Citrus staff, and given additional training in strategies for dealing with different behaviors.  Citrus also places children in therapeutic foster homes and community/residential group homes that best suit their needs.  Foster parents receive additional supportive services including therapy, mental health and emotional support, and assistance developing a permanency plan for the child.
