Specialized therapeutic foster parents provide care to teens with challenging behaviors and work collaboratively with SailFuture’s mental health counselors, case managers, and support team.

A more recent project is SailFuture Academy, a St. Petersburg foster care agency that is opening a vocational high school this fall for lower-income who have become disengaged in traditional high school settings.
The program will focus on giving students career skills in a real-life environment.
