Targeting High-Need Families with Persistent Challenges and Multiple Impairments
Keeping Families Together serves families who have persistent challenges and multiple impairments that compromise their ability to provide a safe and stable home for their children. Poverty, mental illness, substance abuse issues, low educational attainment and little work history are common. For families that are also homeless or unstably housed, these multiple challenges often manifest in multiple contacts with the child welfare system.
Parents in these families tend to receive multiple referrals for services and touch many public systems, yet fail to provide a minimum level of care to their children.
CSH believes that the children in these families could benefit most from supportive housing.
