SafeCare Program
The SafeCare is an evidence-based, in-home parent-training curriculum for parents who are at-risk of, or have been reported for maltreatment. The goals of the SafeCare PHN In-Home Program are to reduce child welfare re-entry, and reduce child maltreatment, among families with a history for maltreatment or with risk factors for maltreatment. The SafeCare PHN In-Home Program focuses on three areas related to neglect and abuse:  health, home safety, and parent-child/parent-infant interactions. The SafeCare curriculum typically takes eighteen (18) to twenty (20) weekly sessions to complete. All the SafeCare staff positions are based in DPSS CPS offices county-wide. The SafeCare PHN provides intensive in-home visitation to open CPS cases, carries a caseload of 10-12 families, and maintains all information needed to track clients participating in the SafeCare Program.
