FAMILY SUPPORT SERVICES

HCS partners with the AZ Department of Child Safety to deliver family support services. These programs focus on family reunification services for children ages birth to 17 years of age and their parents.

Supervised Visitation Program

Visitation can help implement many essential family reunification goals, including maintaining the parent/child/sibling relationships; enhancing child and parent self-images; promoting partnership between parents and foster parents; learning and practicing parenting skills; helping family members confront reality; and documenting progress towards reunification goals.

Parent Aide Program

This program provides the parents with education, instruction and support services to help improve their parenting skills and allows them to put these skills to practice during supervised visits with their children. The HCS Parent Aide helps the parents set realistic goals relating to their case plan and manages their progress to help identify if there are any risks or safety threats that might assist in the decision to reunify the children with the parents.
