Family Preservation Services provides assistance to families with children who are in need of emergency and supportive services. The focus of service delivery is to strengthen families to enable them to remain independent in their homes and to keep children safe and well.

Through the program, staff will address concerns identified by the family and provide services to minimize risk of homelessness, improve family communication, meet family goals and prevent out of home placement of children. A family services worker will assess the situation, develop a service plan with the family around their identified needs and provide appropriate referrals and emergency interventions as required. The family services worker may also collaborate with court, schools, counselors and other professionals in service planning and delivery.

For more information on the services available, please call (804)646-0180.
