This article explains the rise of Health Homes and how they can be applied in therapeutic foster care settings. It describes the use of Health Homes as a system of care that includes an approach more focused on treating the overall well-being of the child rather than having treatment primarily centered on behavioral needs. Making the transition to a holistic approach is discussed and the actions of Centerstone‘s Therapeutic Foster Care services are highlighted.
