A Focus on Family

As a licensed Resource Family Agency (Foster Family Agency) (RFA License #370603102), Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) provides Resource Family placements for youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), as well as additional innovative and trusted programs as outlined below to meet the needs of the youth and families we serve.

Family preservation is important and, even when temporary placement is necessary, the ultimate goal is reunification. In cases when it is not in the best interest of the youth and the courts have advised against a reunification plan, TMI has been successful in finding a long-term stable Resource Family for youth where they are loved and nurtured.
