ACSC provides medical foster care in licensed homes with capable foster parents who can perform medical care and promote health.

The program follows a family-centered approach, which has been linked to positive outcomes, such as improved health care and emotional support for the foster child.
ACSC’s medical fostering program prioritizes a family-centered approach to care, rather than institutionalization in a hospital or facility. The licensed medical foster care homes provide family-centered, accessible, continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective care. Studies show that specialized medical homes result in positive outcomes for children with special health care needs, including improved family-centered care, reduced health care utilization, increased emotional attachment and support, and improved life skills as they age.
ACSC is committed to establishing strong partnerships with regional and agency stakeholders to ensure the highest quality of care for foster children and to provide support in improving the social services sector’s infrastructure and processes.
