Family and Community Partnerships
Strong children come from strong families and strong families come from and help build strong communities. The notion of Family and Community Partnerships comes from the philosophy that working not only with children and families but also with community service providers, increases family well-being.
An important opportunity for CHILD, Inc.’s social service staff get to know your family is completing the Family Partnership Agreement with you. This documents helps staff and parents work together or “partner” on things related to food, clothing, housing, finding a dentist or doctor, and helping to get back into the work force. This document also helps us know what you are interested in and allows us to plan workshops, groups, and other activities.
Each week education and social
service staff participate in case review meetings with Child Development
and Mental Health Managers. These review sessions are confidential and
used to monitor both the child and family’s growth and development.
No information about you and/or your child is shared outside the agency
without your written permission. The one exception regarding this policy
involves investigations conducted by the Department of Children, Youth,
and Families. We are required by law to convey information if there is
any concern involving the physical or emotional well-being of a child.
