At The Family Resource Center, we celebrate all families. We empower and support all families that are in need of our help. Our services are truly individualized for each and every family. Every family is their own best expert on their family. We need to hear from you, what will work best for your family and what won’t work best. Truly a case-by-case basis!
We are NOT DCYF! The Community Based Voluntary Services (CBVS) program was created to intervene before the state or DCYF has to take serious measures. Our goal is to help you and your family when you need help the most so DCYF does not have to.
What is the CBVS program?
It is a preventative program that helps families stabilize and create a plan on how to grow in the future.
- This program takes 3-6 months to complete depending on the long term goals each family sets. Once again every family is different.
- First, we focus on the immediate needs of the family and what we can do right now.
- Next, we focus on the future and what long term goals we can support the family in achieving.
What Does The Process Look Like?
Each family is different. And different families come with different obstacles. We tackle those obstacles in a unique way based on what works best for the family. By practicing Solution-Base Casework, we are able to support each family with resources and solutions that fit their needs.
Truly a case-by-case basis!
Our 5 Step Process
After completion of the program, are families back on their own?
No! The last thing we want is for a family to end up where they started. When the 6 months are up, we still have resources that can be utilized by the families. Our goal is to get a family back on their feet and stay on their feet. We do that by either recommending another program we provide or recommend something outside our facilities. We will not leave a family to fend for themselves.
(Of course, these services are voluntary, so a family can opt out of them at any point, however we believe “it takes a village” so if a family wants the support, it’s there!)
