“They were in a therapeutic home”said Palmer. Therapeutic homes are supposed to be more educated and qualified to handle children with disabilities whether it be physical, mental, emotional or behavioral. Sources told FYN that the typical foster parent gets paid around $15 per night that a child sleeps in their home. A therapeutic home makes between $50 and $110 per night a child is in their home. The range of pay depends on the significance of a child’s disabilities.
“I just want them to be in a safe environment”the source says.
