The Preventive Services Program aims at strengthening clients, enabling them to empower themselves to
better their lives for their families and their communities in which they live. Through a comprehensive
treatment plan, the program works with families
to prevent placement of children in the foster care system and maintain a healthy
family structure within the home. Families learn how to solve problems, cope with
one another and attend individual and group counseling sessions in their home environment.
Preventive Services is fully grant funded program. As a result, clients do not pay
a fee to participate in the program. Referrals to the program are made through the
Erie County Department of Social Services.
