We are excited to announce the publication of a new article that demonstrates how Pressley Ridge’s treatment foster care pre-service training significantly changes parenting attitudes and licensing rates compared to a basic pre-service training (Model Approach to Partnerships in Parenting [MAPP]). This publication brings us one step closer in the process of becoming evidence-based.
Stay tuned for updates on our evidence-based status for our pre-service training. Click here to read the full-text article.
Henrietta Thomas has been a foster parent with Pressley Ridge for 20 years, and in that
time, more than 100 children have called her house home.
Many of the kids she has fostered continue to visit – some bringing their own children to meet
Henrietta and all hoping for one of her home-cooked meals. Her current foster children agree
that she makes the best dinners and baked goods.
Ms. Henrietta is a model parent, offering guidance and support to others who are new to
fostering. She is always available in a time of need or crisis and will go above and beyond to
make sure a child has a safe and loving home.
One child said, “Ms. Henrietta does whatever she can to make sure we get along. She doesn’t
make me feel like I am in a foster home.”
We are fortunate to have hundreds of foster parents, many of whom, just like Ms. Henrietta,
have given decades of love, support and dedication to our kids and families.
