Triple P is a 10 session in home program designed for parents of children between the ages 3-12 that would like to learn to manage their child’s misbehavior. The curriculum is evidence based and provides parents with strategies to improve the parent and child relationship. There is no specific criteria other than the age of the child (3-12) and that parent’s consent to completing 10 sessions. Parents are given a workbook to use during the sessions and to keep and reference after the program ends. Also, there are incentives provided to parent’s midway and on the last session for completing the program. Only 1 parent is required to participate, although we encourage participation from both. Anyone interested in the Triple P Program may call 786-802-3448 or email Janet Pereyra (Janet@fofmiami.org) with name, address and phone number to have a Parent Educator make contact and set an appointment. This program is generously funded by The Children’s Trust.
The Department of Children & Families (DCF) contracts with Citrus Family Care Network to provide child welfare services in the Southern Region of Florida for children who have been abused, neglected and/or abandoned. Federation of Families (FOF) is contracted by Citrus and collaborates with the Department of Children and Families (DCF) to perform Formal Safety Services (FSS).
DCF develops a written agreement (Safety Plan) with a family that clearly describes the safety services that will be used to manage threats to a child’s safety. Formal Safety Services assist families to engage in actions or activities to eliminate or mitigate threats to the child’s safety. The safety plan clearly outlines what these actions and activities are, who is responsible for undertaking them, and under what conditions they will take place. It is designed to control threats to the child’s safety using the least intrusive means possible. FOF provides support to the family and complete home visits to ensure that the safety actions on the Safety Plan are being carried out as requested by DCF.
