Foster Parent with Ryther

Ryther’s Therapeutic Family Care (TFC) Program provides therapeutic foster homes for children with emotional disturbance and behavioral health issues. Many have suffered from abuse and neglect, experienced traumatic life events and perhaps several foster care placements.

Our therapeutic homes provide safe, nurturing care for children who have made progress in their treatment and are in transition to adoptive placements or in reunification with their birth family. We also provide support services and parenting resources for these childrens' birth parents.

Other placement options include international refugee children, sibling sets and respite care. Therapeutic homes receive comprehensive supports and subsidies up to $1,800 a month.

For any questions or general information about our foster care program, contact Connor McCormick at 206.450.4087 or email .
