SafeCare Family Services (SFS): SafeCare Family Services is an evidence-based, in-home, parenting skills training curriculum for parents who are at risk of, or who have been reported for, child maltreatment. The program is broken down into 3 curriculum modules. The Parent-Child/Parent-Infant Interactions Module targets risk factors associated with neglect and physical abuse. The Health Module targets risk factors for medical neglect. The Home Safety Module targets risk factors for environmental neglect and unintentional injury. The majority of the curriculum is conducted through home visits to eligible families. SafeCare Family Services takes a structured problem-solving approach and serves clients with at least one child in the home between the ages of 0-5, who can benefit from enhanced parenting skills, have an open case of neglect or a history of neglect, lack resources or social support, are in the Independent Living Program, are participating in a substance abuse treatment program, are receiving mental health care services and/or have demonstrated a lack of supervision and safety. Families For Kids (FFK) is a preventive foster care program that operates in conjunction with the Beacon Center at P.S. 269. FFK helps families eliminate or reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect – which often results in children entering the foster care system – by identifying and providing those specific services that address those issues placing a youth at risk of foster care placement. Additional support services are also provided such as parenting workshops, parent support groups, assistance with government entitlements, health concerns, referrals for treatment programs and other barriers that may be causing the family additional stress in caring for their children.
