RESOURCE FAMILY SERVICES

As a licensed Resource Family Agency (previously named Foster Family Agency) (RFA License #370603102), Toward Maximum Independence (TMI) helps parents of youth with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities manage difficult challenges and obtain the relief and support they need.

 

Resource families are available for youth with special needs who are unable to remain with their family of origin. Please contact Nataly Martinez at (800) 877-5452, Ext 317 or natalym@tmi-inc.org if you are interesting in becoming a TMI Resource Family. Please visit our Become a Resource Family page for details and requirements.

Children thrive when they feel safe, secure and loved. This is the drive behind our belief that “all children belong in families!”

 

Our Resource Family program includes, but is not limited to:

 

  • Comprehensive orientation to new resource families followed by extensive ongoing training to fulfill annual requirements

  • In-house Autism Spectrum Disorder training and certification

  • Pro-Act certification

  • Resource parent support group meetings

  • Ongoing certification of resource family homes per Community Care Licensing and Regional Center requirements

  • Placement of youth with resource families chosen to best meet the youth's needs

  • Respite (out-of-home) provided by our resource families to Regional Center clients

  • Facilitation of shared parenting relationships and communication between parents of origin and resource parents

  • Social work support to resource families and families of origin

  • Assistance to resource parents at medical and psychiatric appointments
