Effectively Addressing Mental Health Issues in Child Welfare Practice: The Family Connection
Pufahl, Elisabeth
Child Welfare, v86 n5 p75-92 Sep-Oct 2007
Nonprofit family-run organizations, such as Tennessee Voices for Children (TVC), are providing leadership in advocating for and delivering services to children and families in need. Utilizing a family-driven approach and a staff partially comprised of parent-professionals, TVC's Nashville Connection and Family Connection programs have strengthened families by providing alternatives to state custody for children and families living with serious emotional or behavioral problems. TVC's Nashville Connection and Family Connection programs did this by coordinating support services, building community bridges, and providing comprehensive in-home services. (Contains 1 table.)
