The Family Preservation Program is a strengths-based, in-home program that promotes the safety and well-being of children and their families. It also assists parents and/or caregivers in maintaining the children (ages birth to 17) in their home.
All families served have had some involvement with the:
- Department of Children and Family Services and/or
- Juvenile Probation Department
The program actively seeks to obtain or directly provide the critical services needed by the family in their home to enable the family to remain together in a safe and stable environment. The primary goal is to enhance the parent/caregiver’s ability to create a safe, nurturing home environment that promotes healthy child development. With this program, the entire family is the client.
Families are referred to the program by the Department of Children and Family Services, or the Juvenile Probation Department, and/or Juvenile Court.
