Some benefits of the EPIC Family Program include parent education classes, case management and resource referral. Therapy and group counseling can make a nice addition to your family's healing journey.
The FCCS EPIC Family Program works with families who:
- have an “open case” with CSD/ Child Protective Services (CPS) and/or whose children remain at home (called "Family Maintenance" or "Family Preservation")
- have an "open case" with CSD/CPS and have a family plan requiring parenting classes, counseling / therapy or other family intervention services.
- have children who have returned home from out-of-home (kinship or other foster ) care and would like transitional assistance
- want frequent services to support increased positive social, emotional and behavioral functioning within the family and community.
EPIC services may also be provided in the community, a relative’s home, or the FCCS office, as appropriate for safety and confidentiality.
These services may be voluntary or Court-ordered. EPIC services may include: - non-judgmental identification and resolution of issues that brought the family into contact with the service system - plan for prevention of re-entry into state custody, where applicable - safety / action plans that address the “how” aspect of change - identification and use of individual and family strengths to problem-solve and succeed in established goals - participation in support groups to meet other parents with similar success-oriented goals, if desired (some Court orders may mandate support group attendance) - case management services, where applicable - resource and referral to other services that may assist the family
