Foster Care Case Management
In cooperation with Missouri Department of Social Services- Children’s Division, Bringing Families Together provides contracted foster care case management services to families whose children have been placed in the foster care system. These children have been placed in the custody of the State of Missouri by the Family Court due to issues of abuse and/or neglect. A Family Service Worker (FSW) is assigned to each case. The FSW:
The smaller caseloads allow our workers to attend to the individual needs of each family more closely and to provide services in a timelier manner.
In conjunction with the Family Support Team, our FSWs develop and implement a service plan to aid the family in reunification, which is always the primary goal. The Family Support Team consists of:
The service plan details the family’s strengths and supports as well as determining what appropriate resources are available in the family’s community that will build on the family’s strengths and help them become successful.
Sometimes, reunification is not possible. Our FSWs play active roles in recruiting adoptive families for children who cannot return home.
