Keeping families together is at the heart of our work
Judson Center’s Family Preservation programs are designed to promote safe, stable family environments for children who are at risk of becoming placed in out-of-home care, or who are returning from placement in foster care. Judson Center’s highly skilled staff works with families by providing tools and resources to meet their goals given the challenges they may face.
We are dedicated to offering families the appropriate resources to help nurture a home environment where children and parents can thrive.
Family Preservation consists of the following programs:
Building Community Partners (BCP) is contract program with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. Services are provided in five counties: Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Genesee and Washtenaw. The BCP program brings together those in the community who wish to support families involved or at risk of becoming involved with the child welfare system.
BCP provides support to children and families in the community through a variety of services including:
Parent Partners is a free program that assists parents whose children have been placed in foster care to help them reunify with their children. The program also works with families with an open MDHHS Children’s Protective Services case (Category I, II, III), where children may still remain in the home. This is done through the guidance and mentorship of other parents who have successfully reunited with their own children. Referrals must be made by a foster care worker or CPS worker, however, parents who are interested in services are welcomed to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
