Family Strengthening

Through funding from the Child and Family Services Agency (CFSA), E/BFSC  provides Motivational Interviewing case management services to support efforts of caregivers in Wards 5 & 6 to safely and adequately care for their children, identify and alleviate barriers to well-being, and and accomplish goals that better position families to thrive.

Information & Referral

Families are provided with up-to-date information about community and government resources to meet immediate and long-term needs such as emergency housing, utility and rental assistance, childcare vouchers, behavioral health treatment, and other necessary supports.

Case Management

Each family is assigned to a Family Support Worker (FSW) who provides guidance on such areas as: navigating educational systems, obtaining government benefits, identifying therapeutic resources for the parent and child, tenant rights, and much more. The FSW also provides crisis intervention, conducts home visits, and encourages community capacity building.
