Families Stronger Together
When a family is identified as at high-risk of abuse or neglect by the Administration of Children’s Services, the family may be required to undergo court-ordered supervision. The Foundling’s Families Stronger Together program utilizes the evidence-based Functional Family Therapy – Therapeutic Case Management (FFT-TCM) model to help families communicate and stay together.
The Foundling’s Families Stronger Together program works to improve safety for families, reduce the length of time families spend under court-ordered supervision, and reduce repeat maltreatment. Families Stronger Together operates throughout New York City and works to improve family attributions, family communication, and supportiveness while decreasing intense negativity and dysfunctional patterns of behavior. Families work with trained therapists to identify goals and meet those goals in order to avoid placement of their children in foster care.
