Family Support - C&Y

  • Description:

    Family Peer Support Services (FPSS) are an array of formal and informal services and supports provided to families raising a child who is experiencing social, emotional, developmental, substance use and/or behavioral challenges in their home, school, placement, or community. FPSS provide a structured, strength-based relationship between a Family Peer Advocate and the parent or family member for the benefit of the child. For the purposes of this service, "family" is defined as the persons who live with, or provide care to, a child and may include a parent, spouse, sibling, children, relatives, grandparents, guardians, foster parents or others with significant attachment to the individual. FPSS are provided by a trained and credentialed Family Peer Advocate (FPA) who is uniquely qualified to work with families based on their personal experience parenting a child with similar needs. FPSS can be provided through individual and group face-to-face work (at the family's home, in the community or in an office) or by video conferencing with face-to-face interface. Categories of FPSS include: Outreach and Information; Engagement; Bridging and Transition Support; Self-Advocacy, Self-Efficacy and Empowerment; Parent Skill Development; Community Connections and Natural Supports; and Promoting Effective Family-Driven Practice.
