Celebrating with a Ribbon Cutting

Successful completion of the program is our first goal but having a great platform for continual growth is our main goal. When a family has done the work needed to graduate from CBVS, their FRC worker will work closely with the family to identify the ongoing support programs needed so their family can remain safe, stable and thrive.
For the next few months, the family support specialist will be with the family every step of the way. They will work with the family to create an action plan and within the action plan there will be long term goals. Those goals will be met with support and resources we have at FRC. This includes making sure the family has the support to continue growing on their own outside the program. Towards the end of the program, a transition will begin for the family to head towards completion of the program.
We assign a family support specialist to the family that is going to be with them every step of the way. They are also not DCYF, they are trained professionals from FRC. The family support specialist will help to stabilize the family first and foremost. This can be anything from helping with transportation, mental health, childcare, healthcare, etc.
We (FRC) steps in and have our own Family Engagement Specialist meets with the family and learns from them directly the depth of each obstacle the families are going through and how they best want to be supported. (Please note, this happens quick – ideally as soon as we get the referral – but absolutely within 72 hours of the referral we will have someone available to meet with the family.)
DCYF does not have to open a case on a family and will refer them to FRC to make sure they won’t have to open a case in the future.
