Partners in Permanency

Partners in Permanency is a collaboration between Children’s Friend and the Department of Children, Youth and Families (DCYF) that provides comprehensive services to children of all ages in DCYF care, along with their birth families and foster families.

The primary goal is to find safe, permanent, stable homes for the children as quickly as possible. To do this, the Partners in Permanency staff work with the birth family, the foster family, and the child.

Services include individual and family counseling, therapeutic groups, support and education and case management and service linkage.
