Too frequently, there are families in our community that are separated due to lack of knowledge, a lack of understanding of available resources to them, or an inability to access such resources. Many of these issues are preventable, and our Community Based Initiatives branch was started as a means of working with families in their homes to educate and improve family circumstances for the ultimate goal of preventing family separation. Release desires to see that, whenever safe and possible, families are able to remain together.
Release is a member of the National Family Preservation Network, and all of our workers are trained specifically in the area of cultural competency and crisis intervention management. All of our specialists are also trained to utilize evidenced-based models for assessing family’s strengths, weaknesses, and areas of need.
