Specialized foster program gives one young man the foundation he needs to thrive in college

Success Starts at HomeThe first few years of my life, I didn't know much about stability or security. I was in and out of foster care, living with six different families by the time I was eight years old. Then I met Bea and Larry Thomas, who became my foster parents.

Families are Invited to Learn More About Foster Care for Children with Special Needs

(Baltimore, MD) - Like most treatment foster care programs in the nation, Kennedy Krieger Institute's Therapeutic Family Care (TFC) program is in critical need of foster families for children with special physical, developmental and mental health needs.
