Oak Plains Academy’s therapeutic foster care program is designed to serve children and youth with special psychological, social and emotional needs who can accept and respond to the close relationships within a family setting, but whose special needs require more intensive or therapeutic services than are found in traditional foster care.

Our program provides 24/7 access to case managers to provide on-going support and crisis intervention. Our case managers are therapeutically trained to assess situations that may arise so that our foster parents have a knowledgeable support system through Oak Plains Academy.
