Provided to families who have requested assistance with family struggles such as truancy, parent/child conflict, and/or child behavioral challenges. The first choice of intervention is to provide services that strengthen and empower the child’s own family.
There are situations that occur in which “the best interests of the child” may indicate the need for out of home placement. When necessary, these are done in a least restrictive manner to help strengthen and preserve the family unit.
Child Welfare assists the family with developing a case plan, assessing the entire family, and delivering services to maintain and/or reunify the family.
