Family-Based Foster Care Services Act

The Family-Based Foster Care Services Act will establish a federal definition of treatment foster care and a baseline quality standard for this service. The Family Focused  Treatment Association has lead efforts to ensure that children and youth that come into the foster care system with special behavioral health needs and/or medical disabilities, as well as vulnerable children living with kin, can have access to quality services and supports in a family-based setting. This legislation will achieve that.
