Who We Are

Benchmark Family Services is a network of professional, therapeutic foster homes and committed staff  across four states with the goal of providing stable out-of-home placements for children in need.  We work alongside child welfare agencies to provide stable care to youth in the least restrictive setting possible.

In 1994 our founder, Dr. Michael Berner, recognized the need for a specialized, therapeutic foster care agency. Since then we have dedicated our efforts to providing quality services to our contracting agencies.

Our staff works tirelessly to support our foster parents as they care for the youth placed in our homes. We take every action possible to provide for the least restrictive setting for these children as they work towards their goals. The results we see in the youth that pass through our care encourage us to carry on in our mission to give even the most troubled kids a second chance.
