Service Spotlight

Family Preservation and Reunification Services

Living at home and growing up with their family is often the best place for children. Children and families thrive when they’re together, strengthening the families’ ties. Through Family Preservation and Reunification, families are supported to stay together.

Keystone Human Services Children and Family Services offers two types of services to support families, Family Preservation and Family Reunification. Both services provide intensive, in-home supports that assist families in crisis to stay together. Family Preservation Services focuses on keeping families intact rather than removing a child from the home. Family Reunification Services reunites children who have been living outside the home with their families. The services operate in a collaborative way so that everyone involved in goal planning receives support, whether it is a foster family, adoptive family, friend, relative, provider, etc. The hope is that, as a team, everyone can work together to strengthen and stabilize the family.

Our professionals work with families to identify and reduce risks that may cause children to have to live outside of their home. Supports are individualized, based on the family’s strengths and needs.
