I'm a family support partner. I work with families that need help keeping their kids out of the Department of Child Safety. My goal is to provide services in the home to help the family with stability and mental health problems, with themselves and their children. I attend court hearings and CFT meetings at behavior health offices in regards to going over goals to successfully advocate for themselves once out of Department of Child Safety rather than the child is in a group home, foster care or home . I help families with resources to stay in stable housing. I help families with getting paperwork done for SSI and also work with SMI clients all over Maricopa County and the parole board.
