The Strengthening Families Program serves families involved with the Department of Human Services, many of whom are dealing with major challenges, like homelessness, substance abuse, or domestic violence. This program helps families in crisis achieve stability by:
– Connecting them to community resources
– Developing sustainable supports
– Offering one-on-one case management
Focuses on keeping families together by addressing the needs in each family’s life, including housing, job readiness, transportation, effective parenting, and money management.
Empowers families to take an active role in their cases, connect families with community resources, and build genuine, supportive relationships to help families stay together.
Assists foster families caring for high-needs foster children by offering in-home support. This one-on-one support helps these children, who have experienced severe trauma and often exhibit challenging behaviors, avoid being placed in an institution.
