Family Partnership

 

Helping guide families into strong futures

HumanKind is happy to offer the service of Family Partnership, which is a team consisting of parents, teachers, family and involved community resources that works to develop a plan concerning the involvement of social services. We have several trained facilitators on staff and have successfully completed Family Partnership sessions in Appomattox, Prince Edward and Charlotte Counties.Preteen_boy

The Family Partnership facilitator brings together children (when appropriate), family members, service providers, caseworkers, school representatives, and any other influential individual in the child’s life to facilitate family goal-setting and decision making that will serve in the best interest of the child. The goal is to avoid an out-of-home or out-of-community placement, if possible.

Our goal with this service is to empower family members to have a voice in the decision making process.

Family Partnership meetings are also initiated when a child is transitioning back home following removal.
