Residential Treatment Program

Bannock House provides residential treatment for young people exclusively through a contract with the State of Idaho, Department of Health and Welfare, Children and Family Services, Region 6. Those eligible for services are males or females between the ages of 10 and 18 in the custody of the State of Idaho as determined by legal action. Placement is determined by the State of Idaho Regional Placement Authority.

Treatment Family Program

 Treatment Families with experience are preferred but not a necessity.  Treatment Parents may be working couples, single parents, or have a stay-at-home parent.  The single most important thing is that the Treatment Parents have a sincere interest in kids and the desire to help them create a better future.  Parents  must be patient, flexible, willing to laugh, eager to learn, and do not easily give up.  One parent must be able to be available in case of emergency. 

Services offered to the Treatment Parents by Bannock Youth Foundation include; weekly  in-home staff visits to assist you with your foster child’s specific needs, assistance with transportation to appointments other activities the child may have, on-call crisis services, pre-service and ongoing training as needed, coverage for your child’s medical and clothing expenses, and a generous tax-free reimbursement of $28.00/day.

To learn more about the Treatment Family Program contact the Bannock Youth Foundation Treatment Family Coordinator at (208)234-2244.
