Atlas seeks to address the risks and needs of individuals released on their own recognizance citywide who are at heightened risk of future victimization or justice system involvement.  FF-CM is an intensive, family-focused, case management approach that is designed to motivate and link families to resources and services to address referral behaviors and family risk factors.  FF-CM is based on the same principles of the evidence-based FFT therapeutic approach: relational-based, strength-based, and respect-based. A key difference, however, is that the FF-CM service is focused on creating linkages to existing community resources to facilitate change.  To do so, interventionists first engage families into the change process and motivate them to connect to services.  The second part of the process involved Supporting and Monitoring families as they participate in services.  Finally, interventionists help the families to Generalize gains and new skills by locking in these changes and planning for the future.  The goal of the implementation of the FF-CM model is to increase the engagement of young adults into therapeutic services, namely Functional Family Therapy.   Rising Ground    Founded as an orphanage in 1831, Rising Ground has been at the forefront of evolving community needs.

Rising Ground is hiring Parent Advocates who will support parents with children in foster care to understand and navigate the foster care system, make decisions for their families, remain hopeful, and address family challenges so that they can accomplish their goal of reunification.  The focus of this job is building connections with parents and working collaboratively with case planners.  Each Parent Advocate will be assigned to a case planning unit and will support parents and bring their experience to the foster care agency decision-making process so that children are more likely to return home quickly and safely.  The Advocates will be part of the Parents Supporting Parents initiative recently launched by the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), in conjunction with Rise, a parent-led NYC advocacy organization, and other important child welfare stakeholders.  All Advocates will receive training and support through Rise. This initiative is built upon the premise that Advocates with their own personal prior lived experience of the child welfare system will be effective in informing and supporting parents with children in foster care and help to improve outcomes for children and families.
