Mission: The 'r kids Family Center mission is to provide specialized, quality services to children and families in transition. Our objective is to promote permanency, safety and stability for children by providing nurturing services to biological, foster, adoptive and relative care families.
Programs: Working with Department of Children and Families referred clients, 'r kids works with families who have been separated from their children. The goal is to provide intensive support services to allow for permanency either within the birth home, the relative care or adoptive home. Staff provide initially center based supervised visitation and individualized parenting support .Additionally assessment and treatment planning services are provided. The provision of unsupervised and in-home visits occurs for those families who have a plan of reunification. If reunification is not the goal, staff prepairs the families and children for a permanent out-of - home placement. Staff provide children with programming to meet specific individual needs, including referrals and transitional planning and support. Our services are on-going and multi-faceted, singularly geared toward the timely implementation and support of effective permanency plans.

Having my children removed from my care temporarily, was the most frightening experience of my life. Ive heard the saying "blessing in disguise" before, but never truly experienced it quite like this.While it was a dificult situation, it is what brought 'r kids Family Center into the lives of my family and I. And, we are blessed to have had their services in our home! To this very day, we still use advice, resources and information provided by our 'r kids worker and the 'r kids orginization. It is my hope that they will continue to be around for many, many more years to help the countless amounts of families that will also gain such a wonderful experience as we did.

I worked at 'r kids as a student intern this past semester. I was immediately welcomed into the 'r kids family from the first day I arrived! I was able to help out with office tasks as well as with a small parenting group for mothers and children. I gained great insights into the world of social work and the operation of a non-profit that has greatly informed my career intentions, and also made many friends with the awesome 'r kids staff!
