“System of Care is not a program – it is a philosophy of how care should be delivered. Systems of Care is an approach to services that recognize the importance of family, school and community, and seeks to promote the full potential of every child and youth by addressing their physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and social needs.”1

Child and family team meetings

Child and Family Team Meetings

Done MRS / SOC Style…CFT Meetings:

  • Recognize and respect the family as the experts of their own children and that no one knows a family’s strengths and needs better than the family

  • Moves away from traditional child welfare service planning which is deficits based and assumes child welfare worker is the professional by trusting and believing that families can solve their own problems

  • Values the supports (both formal and informal) that the family brings to the table

  • Is guided by a neutral facilitator to give voice to both the family and the professionals


Your role in the cft meeting

Your Role in the CFT Meeting

As Work First Workers You Can Help By:

  • Being willing to support the family by sharing your observations of their progress in the WF program, of their successes, of their barriers or challenges, and of their on-going needs

  • Support the family by discussing how their work participation will impact their ability to provide appropriate care for their children

  • Being willing to be a teacher and a formal support for the family to increase the number of successes that families experience

  • Sharing information with the team about any external resources that may assist the family in reaching their goal of being successful parents and economically self-sufficient citizens


You are part of the equation

What is the pip

What is the PIP?

  • A plan to continue enhancing child welfare reform developed through a collaborative process between staff from county departments of social services, youth, parents, foster parents, service providers, and other child and family serving agencies

  • It not a new initiative or project; it is a continuation of the work we have already accomplished through MRS/SOC

  • Ultimately this plan is about improving outcomes for children and families which can only be accomplished through collaborative efforts

  • A plan whose implementation benefits from collaboration among various stakeholders, including Work First staff
