Social Services

The McNabb Center offers a continuum of social services for families in need. The Center provides supervised visitation and behavior modification as well as a Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption program.

Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption

The McNabb Center’s Therapeutic Foster Care & Adoption program serves children and teens who are in state’s custody due to abuse or neglect and who have behavioral or emotional problems. These children need a more specialized type of care than what they can find in standard foster homes. The purpose of therapeutic foster care is to help each child so that he or she may go on to live successfully within the community.

Become a foster parent! Help a child live the life they were meant to live. Provide the support and stability a child needs at the most critical time of their lives.
