Benchmark Family Services (Therapeutic Foster Care)

Why Work Here?

Generous PTO package, insurance benefits, mileage reimbursement

Benchmark Family Services is a network of professional, therapeutic foster homes and committed staff across four states with the goal of providing stable out-of-home placements for children in need. We work alongside child welfare agencies to provide stable care to youth in the least restrictive setting possible. The Benchmark way of providing care has remained consistent since 1994. We remain diligent in supporting our foster families as they provide the direct care to the youth placed through our agency. We recruit and train quality, professional therapeutic foster homes. We manage the cases of the youth placed in those homes while supporting the foster parents with on-going training, 24/7 on-call support, premium financial reimbursement and access to a local, qualified team of staff ready to assist them at a moments notice. We hold ourselves to a very high standard of quality in our licensing processes, case management procedures and internal operations. We use ChildTrax to make sure we are going above and beyond state requirements. This also provides a central repository for all case management information so that we can provide consistent care and support no matter who may be on the case. Our team of Program Support Specialists work with our State and Regional Directors to maintain the high level of quality that Benchmark expects in each of our regional offices. By streamlining our procedures, we are able to respond very quickly to requests for information by custodial agencies allowing them to make crucial decisions as we work together to help our youth reach their goals.
