Strengthening Families to Create a Healthy Community

Family Ark Goals

  • We work together in partnership with our children, referral sources, parents, foster parents, and other community providers to promote positive change in the lives of children and families.
  • Whenever possible, we will seek to keep the child in the home of his/her biological family while working toward overall improvement within the family system.
  • When it is necessary to remove a child from the parents’ home we will attempt to keep the child in the family’s geographical area to facilitate contact and seek reunification as quickly as therapeutically possible.
  • We will strive to keep admission to our program easy, uncomplicated and at a reasonable cost.
  • We will continue to assess the changing needs of the community and expand our programming as necessary.
  • We will remain aware of the profound effect removal from the family can have on a child and let this awareness influence our actions on behalf of the child.
