Family Support Services

Family Support Services pairs caring family advocates with families to achieve self-sufficiency by providing the following: goal setting, addressing immediate needs through resource sharing and referral networks, financial coaching, and parenting education. The overall framework follows the Family Pathways Model which incorporates case management, developing increased protective factors and family strengthening over time. Intensive services typically taper off as goals are reached and families become more successfully independent and self-reliant.

Evidence of program success

In reviewing evaluation reports generated from ETO (Efforts to Outcomes database), results show positive growth in all of the 14 domains of the Colorado Family Support Assessment 2.0 for those who had a follow-up assessment. Somewhat surprisingly, there was even positive growth in cash savings (29.27% of clients) and debt management (53.85% of clients) which is pretty challenging in our region of Southwest Colorado.
