Foster Care

Pinebrook has been providing placement (foster care) services for over thirty years, with a variety of programs to meet the individual needs of children requiring out-of-home placement, and their families. Individualized goal setting and permanency planning begins at the time of placement and throughout the child’s care with Pinebrook.

Children are placed in a safe, structured, family setting where the resource parents are nurturing, accepting, and enjoy helping children develop and grow. Each child is assigned a caseworker, who visits the resource home regularly to meet with the child and his/her caregiver, provide case management services, and conduct a safety assessment during each in person contact (frequency is determined by the level of care needed).

Pinebrook is firmly committed to engaging biological/legal parents as partners in their children’s ongoing care and development. Weekly facilitative supervision of family visits is offered and targeted interventions and education/modeling of appropriate parental behavior is provided.

Referrals to any of the placement service programs are accepted at any time, including after-hours and weekends, from the Offices of Children and Youth, Juvenile Probation or Developmental Program by calling 610-432-3919.
