Bellewood strives to take as many proactive approaches to childcare as possible. With this in mind, we offer services to restore unstable families and prevent further turbulence. In this program, Bellewood staff work closely with families to ensure the safety and stability of children in their homes. They also provide parents with valuable tools and skill sets necessary to manage difficult issues facing their families.
The Family Preservation Program is a short-term, family-based crisis intervention program designed to assist families in crisis by improving parenting and family functioning while keeping children safe.
Kentucky’s preservation program has been successful in reducing re-entry into out-of-home care, accelerating family reunification and promoting family well-being.
To qualify for FPP services, families must be at imminent risk of child removal or have a child in foster care returning home.
IMPACT Plus services can be provided to young people in the home, in the community, or in our offices, and are designed to help families prevent out-of-home placements and/or inpatient hospitalizations. IMPACT Plus therapy services assist in improving specific behaviors, and increasing overall family functioning.
