Program Supervisor: Treatment Foster Care Oregon for Childhood

Job Description:

Program Summary: Treatment Foster Care Oregon for Children (TFCO-C) is an evidence-based alternative treatment intervention that supports and treats children with significant mental health and behavioral challenges. TFCO-C provides a level of intensity similar to residential treatment in a more natural setting - the home of a licensed foster provider. The intervention model contains several components such as: training and support for the foster provider; family therapy for the child’s parent/aftercare provider; skills training for the child; and case management and consultation.
An individualized treatment plan is developed for each child in the program with goals that focus on: improving the child’s emotional and behavioral functioning; promoting positive educational outcomes; and building strong family relationships. A child’s goals are met through close supervision, fair and consistent limits, predictable consequences, and supportive relationships with mentoring adults.
Position Overview: The Program Supervisor is responsible for oversight of clinical services and program administration of the Treatment Foster Care Oregon for Childhood (TFCO-C) program. The TFCO-C target population is children with a mental health diagnosis ages 7-11 with a history of problems including family issues, aggression, poor peer relationships, poor coping and social skills, low self-esteem and difficulties with self-regulation.

  • Leading individualized programs for children enrolled in the program
