fadThe Alliance for Strong Families and Communities has assisted over 50 providers of children’s residential care in developing a transformational blueprint to position their organizations for sustainability as effective providers of family and community-based services. Residential transformational change is designed to help residential providers transition from a placement model of residential care to a model of family/community-based treatment that:

  • Is rooted in evidence-based or evidence-informed services
  • Has a child- and family-centered approach and values orientation
  • Fully integrates treatment with home- and community-based services and supports.
