is a strength-based approach to give you and your family a voice when trying to resolve identified concerns with the Beaver County Children & Youth Services (BCCYS), Beaver County Juvenile Services division (BCJSD), and/or the Truancy Intervention Program (TIP). FGDM is a voluntary process where friends and family are brought together for a family conference. This empowers families to engage in their own strengths to create the best possible environment for the children.
The Prevention Network’s Family Finding program focuses on identifying family members, friends and supports in hope of developing a permanency plan for at-risk children and identified through Beaver County Children & Youth Services. We collaborate with family and service providers to establish and promote alternatives to foster care placements while serving to shorten the lengths of stay for out-of-home placement.
