Description of Service
Family Reunification/Family-Based Services is the planned process of reconnecting children in out-of-home foster care with their biological/legal families. The purpose of our Family Reunification/Family-Based Services program is to help young people achieve and maintain, at any given time, their optimal level of reconnection, from full reentry into a family system to other forms of contact which affirm family membership. To help accelerate the reconnection process, frequent case manager contact is arranged and in-home services are provided by a reunification coordinator. Improved family relationships, communication, and family functioning are key elements of Family Reunification/Family-Based Services.
Family Reunification/Family-Based Services combines the strengths of Family-Based Services with in-home foster care services. The aim of Family Reunification is the creation of a solid biological/legal family environment, the shortening of a child’s stay in foster care, the facilitation of a stable return home, and a decrease in future foster care placement.
