The AFS Family Support Program works with families to prevent the escalation of current events within the household that could warrant the removal of a child from the home.
AFS Family Support Services assists families in the following ways:
Stabilize the behavior of families, children, youth and adults
Guide and encourage adults and youth to make positive life choices
Empower parents and caregivers to become effective parents through developing the necessary resources and skills
Collaborate with families to develop a strength-based support system to become self-reliant
Reinforce the strengths of each family to maintain family preservation and maintain children/youth in a permanent and stable family setting
