Under the general direction of the FTC supervisor, the FTC facilitator will facilitate a variety of family team conferences (FTCs) within the department. The FTC facilitator will review all cases in Connections in preparation for the conference. The FTC facilitator will assess and evaluate the family for risk / safety issues during reviews. When necessary the FTC facilitator will participate in team meetings prior to upcoming FTCs. The goals of the conferences are to identify risk issues, prevent abuse and neglect; keep families together; stabilize and maintain family functioning. The FTC facilitator will work 35 hours per week, 9 – 5PM and evenings when necessary. Conferences will occur within the family’s home or the office.
