Our Training

Pressley Ridge TFC/CRR is a specialized model of Foster Care that provides children a placement option in a therapeutic certified home. TFC/CRR has numerous trained professional parents that are certified and prepared to provide a nurturing and stable therapeutic home 24/7 to children with trauma and/or a mental health diagnosis.
