Family Partnerships Initiative (FPI) and Youth Enterprise for Success (YES) provide wraparound services to at-risk children and their families, particularly those who have struggled with traditional service provision and are at-risk for out-of-home placement or working toward reunification. Using a family-centered and community-based philosophy, we focus on maintaining or reuniting children with their family by creating individualized care plans. Services focus on the child’s well-being and progress, but often incorporate other family members and supports. The program is most beneficial when the family is open to receiving services and participating in their child’s treatment planning.
FPI and YES help the family live more successfully in the community, so they ultimately need fewer formal services and interventions. The program provides an array of services beyond traditional financial and geographic boundaries to develop a creative and flexible continuum of care. FPI and YES care coordinators are assigned no more than eight families so they can provide thorough and focused support and care.
Designated county liasions in each county make program referrals, and families go through an assessment process before they are accepted. It typically lasts twelve months but can extend beyond that based on the family's needs.
