LifeConnections Creates Opportunities for Child Welfare System in New Hampshire!
Updated: Oct 7, 2021
LifeConnections has partnered with the State of New Hampshire's Department of Children, Youth and Families Division to develop a service to support youth ages 17+ with intellectual and developmental disabilities and complex medical and behavioral health needs.
Our Specialized Family Foster Care Program is a community based family foster care option that provides a continuum of care for youth that are ready to transition from a staffed residential setting, out of state placement and/or in need of an individualized foster home with staffing and intensive wraparound clinical services. The specialized foster care model provides a youth with the opportunity to live in a private family home with experienced providers. Our specialized foster care providers may be families, couples or individuals that provide an opportunity youth to learn new skills, socialize, participate in community activities, develop natural supports and live a meaningful life in their community. This service is creating capacity within the system of care and providing a service option for youth who are ready for the next step towards self-sufficiency.
