Family Preservation Program

Community Based Program

General Information
Description of ServiceThis program is funded by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services(DYFS). The Apostles' House staff works with families who have been identified by DYFS as at-risk of having children removed from the home and placed in foster care. There may be abuse or neglect issues or a mother may just be overwhelmed and need assistance. We are the last step before the case goes to Family Court. We work in the home with the family for four to six hours weekly. We make sure children are in school, seeing doctors or therapists and being cared for properly. We advocate for clients, teach parenting and life skills as well as housekeeping skills. The average case is active with us for six to eight months. We have a 83% success rate in keeping families together.
