The Family Advocacy Program was created to connect families to available resources within the community when removal of children from the home is due to neglect. The focus of the Family Advocacy Program is to promote safe stable, self-sufficient families. By identifying families at risk early on, intervention can be staged and implemented in order to reduce childhood trauma and the division of the family unit by addressing the source of the neglect.
Risk factors include: Poverty And Struggles To Meet Basic Needs, Parental/Guardian Drug Abuse, Inadequate Housing, Caretaker Inability to Cope, Mental Health Challenges, Low Financial Literacy
