Family reunification and preservation
We work closely with each family to determine the level of services that will be provided to prevent family disruption and out-of-home placement for children.
KDC’s Support and Stabilization program is offered as a comprehensive service for families referred by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). The program contains a wide variety of services that focuses on family preservation and reunification through strengths-based, individualized services, including parent coaching, visitation support, and emergency assistance.
