NFI Treatment Foster Parents provide a structured, well-supervised, nurturing home. They support children in skill building towards healthy relationships to rejoin their families, promote situations that enhance self-esteem, and encourage constructive problem-solving towards positive life choices. They are an integral part of the treatment team and work closely with NFI clinical staff to ensure the best possible outcome for the child. Most importantly, NFI Treatment Foster Parents are committed to the best interests of the child, their primary family, and supporting the child’s comprehensive treatment plan.
