We’re Aotearoa’s first therapeutic foster care agency where training in TBRI® and support provides healing homes.
Our Vision is a transformed and transformational culture of foster care in Aotearoa.
We are a registered not-for-profit Charity that endeavours to INSPIRE, TRAIN and SUPPORT individuals and families to become lasting foster parents.
We recognise that children can experience holistic wellbeing and improved outcomes when they are IMMERSED into safe and nurturing therapeutic environments.
TBRI® is an attachment-based, trauma-informed, whole-child, multi-systemic and evidence-based intervention that is designed to meet the complex needs of vulnerable children.
TBRI® uses Connecting Principles for attachment needs, Empowering Principles to address physical needs, and Correcting Principles to disarm fear-based behaviors. While the intervention is based on years of attachment, sensory processing, and neuroscience research, the heartbeat of TBRI® is connection.
Every child at Immerse receives a complete wraparound service.
Every foster parent will receive ongoing training, support and resources.
Ingage is a therapeutic programme wrapped in fun, this runs every second Saturday during the school term for our children in care.
Imerge is our unique strength-based coaching service for children in care aged 13+ years. We’re helping them to transition successfully to interdependence.
We believe that those supporting us financially are as much a part of the solution as those working the front line. Together we can achieve a transformed and transformational culture of foster care in Aotearoa.
