The Health Federation of Philadelphia received funding from the Children’s Bureau to develop and lead a collaborative effort involving the City of Philadelphia Departments of Human Services and Behavioral Health and the Family Division of the Philadelphia Court.
The purpose of the Regional Partnership is to increase child, parent and family-well-being for children birth to five who are in out –of-home placement and affected by parental substance use. The project will test the efficacy of integrating Child-Parent Psychotherapy, an evidence and relationship based treatment model, with a unique “one-stop-shopping” program, the Achieving Reunification Center. Additionally, the project will work to improve the overall system of services for young children affected by parental substance abuse by strengthening existing partnerships and interagency collaborations and expanding cross-system training.
