FAMILY SEARCH AND ENGAGEMENT

Below are resources and tools that we frequently use in our work with public agencies and private providers to install effective Family Search and Engagement (FSE) practices. These materials were developed by 3P members and can be used by practitioners to engage children, their families and other adults in the FSE process. These FSE materials can be used at all stages of the child welfare process. Family Search and Engagement should begin at the earliest stage of child welfare involvement and should be used continuously to preserve continuity of family relationships, establish placement options and promote legal permanency and lifelong connections for children and youth in care.
