We are happy to announce that National Youth Advocate Program (NYAP) has chosen JusticeWorks to serve as one of their providers for Family Engagement Services in the 11 counties that make up Region 4. We are honored to be partnering with NYAP to provide this great service to families referred by DSS. Our main goal is to support families and prevent children from entering or remaining in foster care. We do this by seeking out additional family members that can support the children, identifying resources needed, and becoming creative with solutions to problems that affect our families.
We currently have a great team of four coordinators who have been gone through extensive training and supervision in order to provide services such as Family Team Meetings and Family Group Conferences.
The program started in January and we are proud to say that we have already held eight successful services to identify creative solutions to keep families together. We have a wonderful team, stay tuned to learn more about the work they are doing!
