Family Outreach (FO)
Desert View is proud to partner with CYFD (Children’s Youth & Family Department) along with a growing number of family centered agencies who are also piloting the “Family Outreach” (FO) Program in an effort to respond with more flexibly to child abuse and neglect reports and to better meet individual family needs. Utilizing this new unit, families with screened-in child maltreatment reports may receive either a traditional investigation or an alternative assessment response (which is part of FO), depending on the type of allegation and other considerations.
Sometimes a report is made and the discovery is, the family is just lacking the opportunity for services- so Desert View provides hands on assistance and reliable resources to the family in need keeping the report to a minimum because the family is being proactive. We utilize case management assessments and development family plan to ensure the families success.
