What is Treatment Foster Care?

Treatment Foster Care brings together professional treatment services for children and youth who are overcoming difficulties with the strengths of caring individuals, couples, or families from the community.

We value attachment-based caregiving, which promotes a secure, emotional bond between care providers and individuals in our program, and positively impacts every aspect of their life now and in the future.

The Program serves children, youth and adults of all ages. All individuals in the program are unable to live with their families of origin for various reasons. As a result of this separation and other experiences, many struggle with forming healthy relationships, acting out behaviours, mental health issues, and unresolved grief and trauma. Where possible, siblings are placed together.

Individuals in the program may access and benefit from the support programs at Knowles Centre, including the Sexual Abuse Treatment Program and psychiatric consultation. Knowles Centre also offers a family suite for arranged visits between clients and their birth families.

Individuals may be referred directly to the program by child welfare agencies or through the Provincial Placement Desk and may be from Manitoba, or other communities from across Canada.
