Assessment and Placement

Our case managers start by conducting a comprehensive assessment of the youth’s needs and strengths. This assessment informs the selection of an appropriate treatment foster home that can best address the child’s unique requirements. The goal is to match the child with a foster parent who has the necessary skills and training to provide specialized care.

Individualized Treatment Plans

Once placed in a treatment foster home, the case manager collaborates with the treatment team which consists of the youth, foster parent, referring agency workers, and various professionals, such as therapists, educators, and doctors, to develop an individualized treatment plan. This plan outlines specific goals, interventions, and strategies to address the child’s behavioral, emotional, and therapeutic needs.

Regular Monitoring and Support

BATGO, Inc.’s case managers maintain close contact with the youth and their foster parent, ensuring that the individualized treatment plan is being followed effectively. Case managers provide ongoing support, guidance, and resources to foster parents, helping them navigate the challenges of caring for a youth with complex needs.

Crisis Intervention

Youth in treatment foster care may experience crisis situations due to their unique backgrounds and trauma history. Our case managers are trained to intervene during these crises, ensuring the child’s safety and coordinating additional services as needed, such as emergency therapy or psychiatric evaluation.

Advocacy

Case managers act as advocates for the youth, ensuring that their rights and best interests are protected. They participate in court hearings and meetings with other professionals involved in the youth’s life, providing critical information to inform decision-making processes.

Resource Coordination

Case managers help connect youth and their foster families to a range of services and resources, including mental health services, educational support, and extracurricular activities. They also assist with accessing public benefits and entitlements to meet the youth’s basic needs.

Documentation and Reporting

BATGO, Inc.’s case managers maintain detailed records of the child’s progress, any incidents, and the services provided. They are responsible for reporting to the relevant authorities, including courts and child welfare agencies, on the child’s well-being and the effectiveness of the treatment plan.

Transition Planning

In some cases, treatment foster care is meant to be a temporary placement. Case managers work with the youth and foster family to plan for a successful transition back to their family of origin or another suitable living arrangement. This includes providing support and services to ensure a smooth transition.

Training and Education

BATGO, Inc. case managers receive specialized training to effectively work with children who have complex emotional and behavioral needs. They stay updated on best practices in the field to ensure that they can provide the highest quality care and support.
