WE UTILIZE A TRAUMA-INFORMED MODEL THAT IS CULTURALLY INFORMED AND ASSURES EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES.
Our mission is to establish, restore, or increase parenting skills in the youth’s home to:
Prevent the need for an out-of-home placement when the child or youth is considered at risk of placement due to abuse, neglect or severe family conflict; or
Facilitate the return of a child or youth from out-of-home care.
We assist families in accessing resources and services before situations become a crisis. Our goal is to improve parenting and family functioning to promote the youth’s health, safety, well-being and welfare, all while supporting the family to remain intact and to allow youth to remain or return home.
CRISIS FAMILY INTERVENTION
Intervention is not something anyone wants to deal with, and unfortunately it can become painfully necessary. Some families experience guilt and self-blame but good can come from a crisis especially if we find the courage to tell the truth. Families are given the opportunity to use a range of stress-management skills to help cope and re-organize after a crisis.
Our goal is to maintain and strengthen family bonding. We give parents opportunities to learn new skills to have successful reunification after a child has been placed out of home care, and also allow agencies, courts, and third parties to have access to the families progress in case other services are needed.
PROMOTING FIRST RELATIONSHIPS (COMING SOON)
Our focus is on infants and toddlers - primarily in building a healthy, positive attachment with them. Our goal is to better understand a child's difficult behaviors, and look at the feelings and needs behind these behaviors while giving parents the necessary skills that may be needed.
