Services. Children deserve to remain safely with their families, whenever possible. VHBG is dedicated to ensuring
that all children and families have access to professional community-based care, proven treatment methods
and comprehensive service planning. These services are designed to enhance parents’ ability to create a safe,
stable and nurturing home environment for their children. Families are partners in this work and their values
and beliefs are respected.
Our goal is to keep children safely with their families and to decrease the numbers of children entering the
child welfare system. More appropriate supports for children, their birth families and extended families, can
help to keep children safely together with their families. VHBG is committed to building a system of services to
support and strengthen families with children and enable families
to stay together and successfully deal with problems to prevent
subsequent abuse or neglect, prevent out-placement of a child,
or reduce the stay for a child placed out of the home.
Foster Care Services
VHBG is a licensed provider of Treatment Foster Care. Treatment
Foster Care (TFC) is foster care with structured therapeutic
support. Children placed in treatment foster care need additional
help, because of trauma they have experienced, along with
possible emotional or physical challenges. Our Treatment Foster
