Reunifying Families

Happy little boy with adult: 'r Kids achieves a significantly higher rate of attendance and compliance with the treatment plans set by the court for children to reunify.  Our reunification rate of 83% far exceeds the DCF report of 52% statewide.Reunifying Families and Permanency Placement

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) refers families for assessment and reunification transition to ongoing intensive case management where services are implemented for BOTH parents and children’s needs (i.e., food stamp enrollment, preschool enrollment, parent/child therapy, etc.). The goal is to provide intensive support services to allow for permanency either within the birth home, relative care, or adoptive home.

Staff initially provides center-based, supervised visitation and individualized parent coaching. The provision of in-home visits and then unsupervised visits occurs for those families whose children are being reunified. When reunification is determined not to be the goal, staff prepares the families and children for a permanent out-of-home placement. Our services remain on-going and multi-faceted, singularly geared toward each child growing up in a permanent, safe, and nurturing family.

Measurement of Success

‘r kids achieves a significantly higher rate of attendance and compliance with the treatment plans set by the court for children to reunify.  Our reunification rate of 83% far exceeds the DCF report of 52% statewide. 95% of our parents attend their visits with their children and actively participate in their children’s scheduled appointments and family conferencing. We believe this success is due to the team’s ability to engage in a respectful and meaningful way with our parents and also provide a nurturing environment that their children thoroughly enjoy.
