Incorporated in 2001, Tapestry Family Services serves as a community-based nonprofit mental-health organization and foster family agency formed to develop and provide programs and services to support and advance the health, well-being, and needs of children, adolescents and their families. Tapestry Family Services operates as a comprehensive system of community-based mental health services for children and families in Mendocino County, including outlying areas of Covelo, Laytonville and Willits. As the name implies, Tapestry programs are designed to weave an array of services to meet the unique needs of each child.
TAPESTRY’S INTEGRATED PLACEMENT AND TREATMENT PROGRAM INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING:
- A Licensed Treatment Foster Care Program provides therapeutic placements in certified professionally trained foster homes for children who are unable to live with their biological family members. Additional services include case management, therapeutic services, respite, foster parent support and ongoing training.
- An Intensive Treatment Foster Care Program designed to provide care and nurturing for children whose care needs exceed the capacity for the Treatment Foster Care Program with foster parents who have received extensive trauma-informed training designed to meet a child’s emotional and behavioral needs while in foster placement.
- A Comprehensive Mental Health Treatment Program for children and their families, funded by Medi-Cal, Mental Health Services Act (MHSA), Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA), and other grants. Services include individual, family and group therapy, rehabilitative services and case management. Tapestry works with the whole child by using a team approach, which includes school personnel, pediatricians, psychiatrists, special education liasons, social workers and extended family members.
- A Child Abuse and Treatment Program (CHAT) is a grant funded program awarded by The Office Of Emergency Services which allows Tapestry to provide trauma-informed therapeutic services to child victims of trauma, abuse, exposure to violence, bullying, neglect, sexual exploitation or victim of criminal activity. This program also works in collaboration with Victim Witness and can assist with Victim of Crime Services.
