CSF case managers visit families in their homes to assess their needs, offer parenting support, and provide case management. Parents also attend parenting classes and support groups at Lifeline's offices. Specialized instruction is provided for kinship families, families with special needs children, adolescents, and other issues identified by the participating families.
Safe Parenting Intervention Program (SPIP)
SPIP is a 52-week court and TERM approved therapy group that addresses child abuse, family violence, and client-specific problems related to child maltreatment. Through mental health therapy combined with psycho-education about child maltreatment and abuse, therapists guide parents through the treatment process, educating them about the behaviors that constitute child abuse and teach them how to overcome the specific issues that make it difficult for them to parent their children. The program aims to ensure child safety and to reunite families where this is consistent with child safety. Clients must pay a fee for each group session. Please call for an appointment; no walk-in appointments will be accepted. If referred by Child Welfare Services, please bring any documentation regarding your intervention requirements to the appointment.
