Trauma Informed

Our trauma-informed approach allows us to make the right match between families and children so that children can stay in the home until they are ready for reunification or adoption.

Inclusivity

No two families are alike.  We seek families of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and religions.  We strive to ensure that all our families feel welcomed and affirmed

Why CHRIS 180 is Right For You!

We operate within the philosophy that we are all a team.  Here are a few reasons why our families love us.

  • We equip our foster parents with a curriculum-based trauma informed approach to parenting children with behaviors frequently seen in foster care.

  • Our Specialists are on call for our families 24 hours a day and work in partnership with each other to ensure that our families receive the care they need. 

  • We work with our families to complete referrals for any necessary therapeutic, medical or recreational support services.

  • We coordinate several trainings every year for our families to get the required continuing education hours needed for reapproval

  • We know that it can’t be all work and no play, which is why we host Family Fun Days twice a year.  

  • We have zero tolerance for discrimination

  • Ongoing support from our Center of Excellence training department and CHRIS Counseling Center
