Family Preservation and Reunification Services
Children and families thrive when they live together and receive supports based on their strengths and needs. Family Preservation and Reunification Services are designed to strengthen and reunify families in their own homes.
Family Preservation is an intensive, in-home service designed to support families in crisis to remain together. Removing a child from the home is always a last resort. The goal of Family Preservation is to reduce the risk of abuse and neglect and avoid unnecessary placement.
Family Reunification is designed to reunite children who have been living outside of their homes with their families and to stabilize adoptive families that are at risk. The goal of Family Reunification is to make sure that children are safe within their home. Our professionals work with the family to identify and reduce or eliminate risks that may cause the child to remain out of the home.
Services are provided in the family’s home for three to five months.
Family Preservation and Reunification Services provided by our professionals include:
- Skill building
- Concrete services with flex dollars (rent, food, clothing, etc.)
