A strong, nurturing family is the foundation of every child’s success. Promoting child safety and prosperity by strengthening and preserving families is at the heart of all our work. Yet, families sometimes struggle to build and maintain a supportive, healthy home where children can thrive.  Our Family Stabilization program offers families facing a wide array of challenges the support they need to remain together. Although families come to us in times of crisis and under stress, they emerge stable, strong, and secure.  We work with families in their communities to ensure their full participation in the process and build trust. Our social workers visit families in their home so all family members can be included. We tailor plans to be responsive to cultural beliefs and each person’s approach to problem-solving.
