Rachel, a Family Support Specialist and Tammy, a DCS Specialist, saw firsthand how a family’s resiliency, coupled with supports, make all the difference.

Both have been working collaboratively with a family for the last four to five months, coordinating visits to ease the impact on the family, maximize their time together, tackle the multiple high-stressors the family is experiencing and provide safety.

Working together, the mother has been able to meet weekly goals, eliminating one stress at a time.  The support, coupled with accountability, has helped mom meet a number of key milestones including clearing a domestic violence charge as well as moving into a clean, beautiful trailer home.  Mom has also found safe stable childcare and caught up with well-child visits.
