Family Development Response (FDR) social work is a non-adversarial intervention allowing the FDR team to work with the family and community to protect the child/youth and build families’ capacity and resources. Focus is on helping the family enhance its strengths, not substaintiating the abuse allegation that may have been received. This solution-focused model and strength-based assessment enhances a family’s ability to engage in a safety plan and set goals for future change. The Youth In-Take Worker is available to assess the need for youth specific services, such as parent-teen mediation and youth agreements. Guardianship Social Workers provide services to Youth In Care and to youth (16 – 19 yrs.) who cannot return home on Youth Agreements and require specific support to live independently.
