Preventing Child Abuse

 

CYN’s Intact Family Services Program has grown by 150%! Now serving over 130 families, this program
prevents child abuse by strengthening families and providing in-home services designed to prevent children from entering the foster care system. This program monitors family interactions, provides linkages to community resources, and provides information regarding child development/age appropriate behavior and discipline as well as general case management services. Emphasis is on preventing child abuse and neglect and keeping the family together.

The Intact staff remained dedicated to serving children and families by consistently visiting homes, finding needed resources for these families and delivering needed items to their doorstep, assisting clients in obtaining needed services, and ensuring child safety by maintaining regular well-being visits. Many of these families are undergoing extra duress during this time and with school being out are struggling to care for and educate their children.
