Foster Care

 

HUGS Foster Family certifies and trains loving individuals and families who wish to foster children.  We teach families the “ins” and “outs” of foster care.  Our professional social workers are available 24/7 to assist families as well as foster children in obtaining the services that they need so our families can rest assured that they will have all the support they need to make a positive impact on the child placed in their homes.  In California, there are over 60,000 children who have been displaced by circumstances out of their control and have placed into the foster-care system.  People and families who are able to provide assistance to these children are in short supply.

Medically Fragile Foster Care

Our medical Fragile unit comprised of two full time nurses offering  24 hour coverage for our sickest clients and support for our families. We are able to offer specified training  for all the medical needs these children might present with as well as working closely with our Social Workers to make sure all needs are being met.

Group Home Program

Terra Manor, Inc started in 1997 with the opening of a small facility for female youth suffering with attachment disorders.  Currently, our facility is able to provide unique programs for female youth of all types that address underlying problems to assist them in coping in a family environment.  Our program takes into account the home and family atmosphere that is not present in many facilities and integrates needed social, rehabilitation, and education reinforcement to provide a foundation for our youth.

AB12 Program

The California Fostering Connections to Success Act was signed into law September 30, 2010 through Assembly Bill (AB) 12 and became effective January 1, 2012. The bill and subsequent legislation allowed foster care for eligible youth to extend beyond age 18 up to age 21. Eligible foster youth are designated as “non-minor dependents” (NMDs).

 

Goals and Benefits
  •  Foster youth will be able to maintain a safety net of support while experiencing independence in a supervised living environment.
  •  Provides youth extended time as “non-minor dependents” to obtain educational and employment training opportunities which assist youth in becoming better prepared for successful transition into adulthood and self-sufficiency.

 

Youth who are transitioning into adulthood are in need of guidance and mentors as well. Hugs Foster Family Agency is always looking for the special family who can provide the guidance to a young man or woman as they prepare for adulthood.
