With Eagle’s Nest, placing agencies will find Specialized Treatment Foster homes for individuals of all ages, genders and culture with special needs where they will be met with a safe, stable, and experienced home. Our agency's response varies according to the child’s unique abilities and needs. We strive to always accommodate each child’s special needs; we do not attempt to change it, just adapt to it so that the child is safe and able to function despite their uniqueness to each complexity. Sometimes, we actively change the way the child is thinking or acting so that their needs are satisfied. At Eagle's Nest, we label this treatment. It is important to state that we do not treat the child or youths diagnosis per se; we treat the dynamic needs of the child that prevent him/her from being fully integrated into society or functioning as normally as he/she can.
