Adult Therapeutic Foster Care

About the program

Devereux Arizona’s Adult Therapeutic Foster Care program places adults with mental health challenges into trained and motivated foster homes. Typically, individuals placed in foster homes have previously lived independently but need additional help managing their illness. Individuals in the program are 18 years of age or older who benefit from a living in a family environment. Individuals may present with moderate to severe behavioral problems.
