Keeping Families Together


Family Resource Connection and Preservation Services (FRCPS) is a community-based, multi-faceted family program designed to assist with the needs of children, youth, and caregivers. The overarching goal of the program is to prevent out-of-home placement and the need for further child welfare system involvement. FRCPS operates within a strengths-based, family-centered perspective and combines individualized family interventions with service management activities. FRCPS identifies and ensures that all needs are addressed so that the family has the best chance of success in maintaining safety, stability, and wellbeing. It has demonstrated efficacy in assisting caregivers with meeting the basic needs of their children and preventing neglect and abuse.

FRCPS services are provided by Family Resource Specialists. The Specialists’ responsibilities extend beyond service management tasks. They provide support and referral services to family members in the home, school, and community. Staff work non-traditional hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays to ensure that family schedules are accommodated.

Because of Windwood Family Services, more than 5,000 local children have been able to stay with their families, instead of protective custody, over the past decade.
