The Family Reunification Team offer services aimed at providing intensive in-home family engagement through case management and therapeutic services in order to ensure a safe and permanent reunification of the child. The program helps families identify and problem solve ways to keep their children safe and avoid future incidents of abuse and neglect. Family Reunification staff will assist clients to practice and develop competence in strategies to avoid, deal with, or overcome those issues.

Goals:

The goal of the Family Reunification Team is to work in collaboration with Case Management Organizations and Eckerd to move children from out of home placements to permanent parental homes effectively and therapeutically.
