JRI’s Family Networks mission is to identify and secure the highest quality of supports and services for children and families involved with the Department of Social Services in the Brockton, Taunton/Attleboro and Cape and Islands areas. Each family receives services that are tailored to their unique needs while recognizing the necessity to have diverse and culturally competent treatment providers. Interventions and provider selection are designed in a way that assists families to become self reliant, enhancing their ability to maintain success and permanency.
Family Networks is committed to continuous quality improvement. Family Networks provides on-going consultation to network providers with regards to program development and enhancement. Family Networks is strongly connected to the community to assist in identifying gaps in services and facilitating opportunities for program and community growth.
Family Networks engages with multiple state agencies to ensure that children and families are receiving appropriate services from various state agency partners to include: Department of Mental Health, Department of Education, Department of Developmental Services, and Department of Youth Services, and both pubic and private insurance companies.
Family Networks is committed to meet the needs of DCF families and staff. Lead agency staff participate in various DCF planning
committees to aid in the design and implementation of a variety of DCF initiatives. Lead staff often participate in DCF management
teams, staff meeting, Area Boards and clinical reviews to provide consultation, training and outcome reporting.
