This research-based family preservation program provides services through Children and Family Services, Office of Behavioral Health, The Office of Juvenile Justice and/or self-referral when a child is at risk of going into foster care, or is being reunified after being in foster care, or a residential facility. Because we know that children who have multiple foster care placements experience compounded trauma, the services are also provided to families to prevent a placement disruption from a foster home. Home Builders' Practitioners spend approximately 10 hours per week with the family for 4 weeks. Included in the areas we already service, Home Builders Program also services the Lake Charles and Calcasieu Parish regions.
