Topic: Family Stabilization
Why was Family Stabilization chosen as a topic by the Advisory Committee? (Click for Answer)
The Advisory Committee chose Family Stabilization as a topic area to highlight because a primary goal of child welfare is to strengthen families and prevent unnecessary placement of children and youth. Too often, children are removed from their families because there are insufficient services to support and strengthen the family and ensure safety. Agencies need to know about alternatives to removal and placement and which types of services/programs are most effective in stabilizing the family, building family strengths, and maintaining safety.
