Family Preservation services are coordinated in partnership with DFCS and other agencies including mental health, substance abuse, education, childcare, and employment services to provide families a comprehensive continuum of community supports, interventions and follow-up services response to individual and family needs.
The primary goals and objectives of Safe Harbor’s Family Preservation program include:
- Assure children’s stability, safety, and well-being within the home and preserve intact families in which children have been maltreated, when the family’s problems can be addressed
- Effectively improve parenting skills by reinforcing parents’ confidence in their parenting abilities.
- Help parents and families identify where improvement is needed and to obtain assistance in improving skills with respect to matters such as child development, family budgeting , coping with stress, health, and nutrition
