Greenleaf Treatment Foster Care (GTFC)

Organization: National Center for Children and Families

GTFC serves Maryland youth who are placed in licensed foster homes in the state of Maryland. We provide intentional therapeutic services that focus on the social, emotional, recreational, and spiritual needs of the youth. Children we serve have experienced layers of traumatic events that have occurred over long periods of time. GTFC staff have specialized training to treat youth with complex needs and trained in the Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach. Impact: GTFC helps heal the trauma of the child’s separation from the birth family due to abuse or neglect. Our team provides intentional/wraparound treatment for youth and loving skilled foster parents that receive tailored trauma training. Services include referrals to substance abuse services, vocational and employment support, sexual trauma therapy, psychiatric assessments, and clinical case coordination. The GTFC staff partners with local departments of social services across the State of Maryland to provide advocacy and access to targeted services for children with medical needs, young children with complex trauma, and adolescents who need someone to commit to them.
