Family Support Specialists
Family Support Specialists, also known as Family Partners, work closely with families who are navigating the education, child welfare, mental health, and juvenile justice systems. They offer one-to-one support by preparing parents for and accompanying them to meetings with schools, service providers, and child & family teams. Family Partners also serve as an educational resource to parents and caregivers seeking ways to improve children’s ability to function successfully at home and in school.
Family Partners also offer Triple P: Positive Parenting Program with tips, tools and strategies to help parents manage misbehavior and raise happy, confident kids and teens.
