First Family Preservation


Family preservation services are short-term, family-focused services designed to assist families in crisis by improving parenting and family functioning while keeping children safe.

Although family preservation programs share many common characteristics, they vary considerably with respect to auspices (public or private agencies), theoretical orientation, target population, identified problem, and primary location of service.


Programs also vary dramatically in terms of intensity, duration, caseloads, and teaming with other professionals or paraprofessionals.
