Epworth Family Support Network (FSN):
Family Support Network offers free, in-home family counseling tailored to meet the needs of families identified as at risk for child abuse and neglect. The program focuses on the needs and welfare of children within the context of their families, building on strengths and protective factors to achieve positive outcomes. The program is unique in that it is the only program providing in-home family counseling free of charge for a nine- to twelve-month duration.

Services are provided by a Master’s level therapist and include:

  • Comprehensive family assessment
  • Weekly in-home, solution-focused family therapy emphasizing problem solving skills
  • Individualized parenting education focused on teaching parents about age-appropriate child behavior and the use of positive parenting skills
  • Resource referral and coordination with other community resources
  • Follow-up in-home visits at three and twelve months post-service to make sure the family is maintaining a safe home and to offer “booster” sessions if needed
