The Extra Mile Family Resource Center offers an array of services to stabilize families at risk of abuse and neglect by providing and coordinating prevention, intervention, and treatment services. Through community based education and intervention programs, we promote child safety, well being and permanency for children in foster care or at risk of going into care and we provide support for foster and adoptive families so that unplanned placement disruptions may be averted.
The Extra Mile Family Resource Centers provide services to biological families at risk of dissolution due to abuse and/or neglect and FINS (Families in Need of Services) families. All referrals are made through the Department of Child and Family Services or FINS.
Services include evidence- based parenting programs designed to address abuse and neglect, targeted services that address family- specific safety issues, and visit coaching, which enables us to use family visits to teach and model safe, loving, appropriate family interactions.
