Preventive Services

Preventive Services are provided to families with children who are at risk of foster care placement. The goal is to support, strengthen and preserve the family unit, to reduce the risk of maltreatment and insure the safety of the child. The need for preventive services is determined by an assessment of:

          • Health and safety of the child

          • Parent refusal to engage in services

          • Parent unavailability

          • Parent service need

          • Child service need

          • Pregnancy
