In collaboration with Department of Family and Children Services, Department of Juvenile Justice, and the child’s family, we determine the best placement for a child
Ensure that costs for recovery and treatment are provided for each child
Provide continual care coordination, follow-up, and evaluation to ensure each child and their family recovers and thrives
