DFPS Announces 2nd Pilot Site for Family-Based Safety Services
Nueces County will be the next pilot site for Family-Based Safety Services (FBSS) to roll out. DFPS has been directed to conduct these pilot programs for the following purposes:
- Increase the quality, availability and effectiveness of family preservation services so more families thrive and avoid future involvement with CPS;
- Improve the safety, permanency and well-being of children;
- Test the approach of providing services through a single contractor. The contractor will offer case management, a continuum of case oversight, quality community and paid services, and interventions that meet the needs of the families.
