Community Collaborations for Children (CCC)
In-Home Based Services are intensive, short-term, home based intervention services offered to families at-risk, with children under age 18, however the children must be at NO RISK for removal. Services develop, support, and empower the family unit by teaching problem-solving skills, assisting parents in becoming advocates for themselves, and teaching them how to utilize community resources. These services occur in the home and focus treatment plans to address the family’s practical and material difficulties. The services teach the family how to live together safely while addressing their immediate needs.

Referral Process for CCC
Referrals may be received from DCBS, community agencies, schools, mental health and self referrals. The DCBS referrals must be approved by the Referral and Selection person in the DCBS District office in your area. All the other referrals may be faxed to the Hopkinsville or Mayfield office for Supervisor approval.
...
Regional Network
The Regional Network plans the budget for the use of CCC network funds to increase community awareness and involvement in the prevention of abuse and neglect of children. Each Regional Network has the task of engaging community leaders, local, human services program providers, and parent who receive the services or are involved in the community.
...

Your involvement as a volunteer in the regional network in your community is welcomed since all community members are valued and have an important role in CCC. One of the unique qualities of the CCC is the recommendation of parental involvement which engages parents to work side by side with professionals. The purpose is to build parents confidence and ability to advocate for themselves and their families, and to provide an open environment in which each participant has a voice.

If you are interested in becoming involved in CCC please feel free to contact us:

Other Programs...

Intensive Family Preservation Services (IFPS)

The goal of the program is to work with families whose children, under age 18, are at imminent risk of removal to prevent the unnecessary placement of the children into out of home care. IFPS works with the families in their homes to set goals and achieve results that provide for safety, permanence and wellbeing of the children and family.

Family Reunification Services (FRS)

The goal of FRS is to assist in the re-entry of the child(ren), under age 18, into the home and to prevent the replacement of the child(ren) into out of home care. In order to facilitate the reunification of the children safely and within a timely manner, the FRS Specialist works with families within the first fifteen (15) of the last twenty-two (22) months of the child being removed from the home.

Family and Children Together Safely (FACTS)

This program is less intensive than IFPS or FRS and gives the added advantage of working with a family whose situation is not at the point that the children, under age 18, are at imminent risk of being removed. FACTS assists the family in the permanency of the child in the home of the biological parent(s), adoptive parents or relative placement. 

Diversion Services

All families referred for Diversion services must meet TANF eligibility criteria. The goal of the program is to divert the placement of children, age five (5) to age seventeen (17), who are at risk of removal from their biological family, relatives or finalized adoptive families and to children who are currently in OOHC and have a plan to return to their families within four (4) to six (6) weeks

Referral Process for IFPS, FRS, FACTS & DIVERSION

Only DCBS/P&P may refer families to these programs. All referrals must be approved by the Referral and Selection person in the DCBS District office in your area. The original referral must be given to the Family Preservation Program worker at the time the case is opened.
