Parent Partners (for Families)

See Parent Partners (for Contractors) here.

The Parent Partners program is an innovative social work practice. It is unique because it celebrates individuals that have overcome obstacles through change, recovery, and accountability. It uses their skills to mentor families who are currently navigating through Department of Human Services (DHS) as their children are in foster or kinship care. Parent Partners are advocates for families. They also hold families accountable by through their case plan goals.

Parent Partners collaborate with social workers and providers to meet the needs of families, and to assist in policy and program development. They also work to change negative perceptions, and facilitate learning opportunities.
