helping parents and children
A New Leaf’s Parent Aide program provides a range of services to the parents and caregivers of children involved with the Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS). The family and the DCS specialist meet to develop a case plan in order to determine service for the family with the goal of child reunification, remaining with the family, and/or severance.
Trained Parent Support partners provide services in a culturally appropriate manner, customizing their plan to the needs of the family. Lessons include positive discipline, home management skills training and education, monitored visitations, as well as education for accessing community assistance.
The objective is returning children to a household that is stable logistically, financially, and emotionally. Through this thoughtful process, A New Leaf’s Parent Aide program makes our communities stronger and safer for children.
Families can access services for 6 months, with an option for a 45 day extension, subject to approval. The Parent Aide program provides individualized services to accommodate the needs of a family’s schedule.
