Family preservation was created for disadvantaged families with children between the ages of birth and 17 years who are at risk of being placed outside the home due to abuse or neglect.  Must have one adult member who voluntarily agrees to participate in the program.

Program Goals:

To enhance family functioning through the development of communication, parenting and problem-solving skills.
