Children need adults they can trust. They need, "Someone to choose me!".
And many need medical support, psychological peace and a place to thrive.
We aim to protect them from less than a full life, but we cannot achieve our goals alone.
At a Specialized Foster Care home, children receive so much more than the necessary medical or behavioral treatment. Every day they are exposed to basic human warmth and affection, allowing them to grow strong through experiences that most people take for granted. This warmth and affection plays a critical role in their full recovery.
We specialize in this medical and therapeutic support, keeping families together, and safe households for children and pregnant teens. Meritan provides this program in Arkansas, Georgia, and Tennessee. It is also available in Mississippi under the name Apelah.
