FAQ

Why was Family Unification Support Services, Inc. formed?

During seventeen years of working with children and families, I noted the fact that children/teens often came back into the state system over and over. Often this was due to a lack of services before and after the transition back home.

Important members of the family unit were also not able to attend due to lack of finances for gas/phone expenses and childcare. In addition, many children reach the age of eighteen and have no home to return to or job skills to live independently. Family Unification Support Services, Inc. helps to fill in these gaps and better serve the ultimate goal of many families to be successfully reunited.  By involving business and community leaders, teens can receive mentoring and job skills for independent living.

What services are provided?

Individual, family and group therapy. Case management assistance when a family needs assistance to connect with area services, mentors, drug and alcohol education as well as parent support groups, parenting classes, anger management  education, self-esteem workshops and prevention groups.
