Welcome Bags & School Backpack Drive
Therapeutic Foster Care – Mankato Area
Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:5
What We Do
Therapeutic Foster Care is a highly supportive, professional service geared to the best outcomes for children in foster care and families. It is a distinct, powerful, and unique model of care that provides youth with a nurturing and therapeutic family environment. Our approach to fostering is met through the nurturing, modeling and teaching provided by foster parents and through the therapeutic interventions, guidance, support and education provided by mental health practitioners.
Collect supplies at your church and deliver to the Mankato Therapeutic Foster Care Office at 710 S. 2nd St., Mankato.
