Our mission is to provide excellence in care and services while assisting in the development and enhancement of the quality of life for children, adolescents, and adults with emotional, psychological, social, and/or physical challenge.
WRAP AROUND SERVICES
Wrap-Around (WA) services provide much-needed support to families in crisis and to vulnerable children who are in unsafe environments or circumstances. WA services are intended to promote safe and stable families as well as facilitate early reunification and/or permanency for children in care. As children enter care, the need for WA services are determined as part of the CCFA.
COMPREHENSIVE CHILD & FAMILY ASSESSMENT (CCFA)
The Comprehensive Child and Family Assessment (CCFA) is a public/private strategy developed with the goal of improving the well-being, permanency, and safety outcomes for children in foster care through comprehensive assessments. The CCFA serves as the foundation for case planning decisions and for making recommendations to juvenile courts. The CCFA also provides children and families with the opportunity to receive appropriate services and to have successful outcomes.
PREVENTION OF UNNECESSARY PLACEMENT (PUP)
The goal of PUP services is to reduce risk factors contributing to child maltreatment to ensure the protection and safety of a child.
Emergency housing/financial assistance
Temporary childcare services
Counseling, emergency transportation needs and psychiatric/psychological testing
Substance abuse assessments
Domestic violence assessments
Sexual abuse assessments
They are provided as a support service among others as part of the safety or case plan in an open Family Preservation or Permanency case. Imminent risk of placement or readiness for reunification of the children must be clearly documented in the case record.
