About This Priority
Investments in proven family-focused programs can make families stronger and safer, allowing them to stay together and raise children in safe, loving environments. Proven prevention and family-preservation strategies delivered by community-based organizations can profoundly help children and families before a crisis or before more intervention is needed. Increased support and resources for kinship families can support families when there has been a removal, while also providing some normalcy and consistency for the child during a difficult time.
