Laura's Story

Laura, a single mother of a four year-old girl and two year-old boy, became involved with Child Protective Services and experienced having both of her children removed from her custody.   

Services: Family Involvement Center provided Parent-to-Parent support for Laura, helping guide her through the court process and providing her with information and resources that strengthened her ability to care for her children.  Laura attended family education classes and developed skills and knowledge that improved her parent-child relationships.

Outcomes: The family was reunified and Laura now has stable employment. Additionally, she has formed a natural support network of family and friends that offer her support. Laura's children are stable and her daughter no longer requires medications she was previously prescribed for behavioral challenges.  Moreover, she no longer requires behavioral health services and Laura's family has become stable and independent.
