What is Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc?
Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc (PTS) is a therapeutic, Maryland foster care program designed to integrate the structure and services of a residential treatment facility, with a less restricted community-based setting.

Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc   is committed to developing innovative solutions for vulnerable populations who face significant challenges. PTS, Inc.'s holistic approach to the planning and delivery of foster parenting services supports individuals and families to be successful both in their own lives and within the community at large.

The foundation of Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc's services is the Resource Family relationship, a relationship based on a personal connection and a mutual respect which develops between the Individuals and families receiving services and their Resource Family/direct service provider. Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc is committed to providing opportunities for each Individual and family to develop the sustained support of this personal relationship in order to guide and support the growth and change of each individual referred for services.

Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc provides a wide array of community support and residential services designed to meet the needs of the individuals and families served and the requirements of the LDSS.

Parker Therapeutic Services, Inc Child Placing Agency provides treatment Maryland foster care. The agency is designed to accept boys and girls between the ages of 0-21. Boys and girls are thoroughly screened to determine appropriateness for placement in a Licensed Foster Home through a review of educational, social, psychological, and psychiatric records. Those identified as appropriate for foster placement need a caring and loving home in which the foster children can grow and develop.

The major emphasis is on a treatment setting within the PTS treatment foster home designed to meet the educational, medical, and psychological needs of each child. All children will be provided with an Individualized Treatment Plan (ITP) to help the child modify his or her behavior. This will be accomplished through the assistance of the assigned Agency Social Worker.

What Is Fostering?
Foster parenting is looking after a child, in your own home, who for a variety of reasons is unable to live with their own family. It is challenging and rewarding, exhausting and invigorating.  Those looking to become a foster parent must realize that there is little in this life that will make you as exhilarated or so depressed. When children need an alternative family they are taken into care by their own Local Department of Social Services.  Their social worker may find them accommodation within their own area, or may approach a CPA, such as Parker Therapeutic Services, to see if we have suitable Maryland foster care opportunities. Once a child is living with our family the child’s social worker retains responsibility for them, while we look after our family.

Fostering is always a team effort, and the “responsible parent” will include many people, including the PTS Clinical Case Managers, the Resource Parents, the DSS social workers, therapists, psychiatrists and hopefully the child’s parents and family. But it is the Resource Parent who gets up at night because the child is having nightmares; participates in “back to school night”;  comforts the child when they are missing their family; and celebrates when they receive a good behavior award at school.
