Family Support

Family Support Service is defined as the provision of face-to-face assistance, coaching, teaching, and role modeling by a trained professional in the family home or community based setting.

When the child(ren) remain placed in their home, the purpose of Family Support Service is to assist with the prevention of out-of-home placement of the child(ren) by maintaining and strengthening family functioning, and alleviating stresses in the home.

When the child(ren) are placed out of home, the purpose of Family Support Service is to assist with the preparation of the natural family, including the child(ren) in out of home placement, for the return of the child(ren) to the home.

Family Support Service promotes child and family well-being, enhances the protective factors through increased knowledge of parenting and child development, builds personal resilience by helping parent(s) and/or family members overcome obstacles, promotes meaningful social connections, provides concrete support, and encourages social and emotional competence.



Intensive Family Preservation + Intensive Family Reunification

Intensive Family Preservation aims to keep children at home in a safe, stable, and nurturing family environment, improve parenting capacity, family functioning, children’s well-being, and prevent unnecessary placement.

The goal is also to safely facilitate the reunification of children with their families and help remove any safety threats.

This service is designed to create rapid, sustainable change in the family unit by focusing on interventions that build on family strengths in order to eliminate safety threats and/or reduce the risk of child maltreatment.
