What We Do
Release’s fourth area of service is collectively known as Community Based Initiatives, or CBI. We were able to proudly launch CBI in the summer of 2013. During its first year, CBI allowed Release to double its number of staff and greatly increase the number of families that we are privileged to serve. CBI consists of two different types of services: In Home Family Services and Parenting Time. For both of these services, our CBI workers go into the homes of families to help maintain safety in the home. Our ultimate goal is to prevent the unnecessary disruption or separation of families, or to reunify them in a timely manner if they are already separated. Our specialists provide families with positive support, parenting skills, life skills training, and much more all in the context of also connecting them with resources in the community to help ensure their continued success.
