Safe and Strong Families
In December 2016, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) has appointed AMKFSC Community Services Ltd. under the Safe and Strong Families – Preservation (SSF-P) program. SSF-P is a pilot project that aims to provide intensive in-home services to support and keep families together, preventing unnecessary removal of children from their families.
Intensive Home Based Services
SSF-P workers will provide in-home intervention at least once a week, and the frequency will increase depending on the needs of the family.
Establish Safety Network for Children and Families
SSF-P workers will engage and seek the support of extended family members, friends and neighbors to be involved in the care and protection of the children.
Build Skills For Parents To Care For Their Children At Home
Provision of knowledge and skills for parents to discipline children in safe ways and provide opportunities to celebrate parenting moments that support children’s development and growth.
Prepare For Step-Down Care For The Family
SSF-P workers will make appropriate referrals to other agencies to provide support to the children and families before the program ends to ensure continuity of care and monitoring of children’s safety.
