Safety Plan Services and

Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency Services

Safety Plan (SP) Services provide oversight of children who are assessed by the Agency (DHS) worker to be conditionally safe and in need of interventions (services and activities) to move them from conditionally safe to safe status during a time-limited Child Protective or CINA Assessment by providing culturally sensitive assessment and interventions. Services assure that the child (ren) will be safe and that without such services the removal of the child (ren) from the home or current placement will occur. This service remediates the circumstances that brought the child to the attention of the Agency.

Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency (FSRP) Services are designed to deliver a flexible array of culturally sensitive interventions and supports to achieve safety and permanency for children in the familys home and/or other designated locations as determined by the Family Case Plan. Family Safety, Risk, and Permanency Services are the primary family-centered service intervention purchased by the Agency.
