In order to support contracted providers in their effort to offer evidence informed services through the Family Preservation Services (FPS) contract, the Family Preservation Resource Library was developed. The intent of this library is to offer support and inform a provider’s therapeutic work with families involved in the child welfare system.
Providers are tasked with building an intervention for families that is tailored to the individual and familial needs and strengths. Based on your work joining and assessing a family, using the Washington State CANS-F, the library below has skills, information, and strategies to be considered in building an intervention. Through this resource we hope to help bring forward the family’s goals and vision of change to support safety, permanency and well-being of the child(ren) in their home.
Joining with a family to understand their goals and needs is a critical step in building an intervention to help. Below are key areas and associated resources.

As with families, there is a daily evolution of strategies and skills that may meet the needs of families in our communities. If there are skills, strategies, or resources that may further the Department’s mission of “Transforming Lives” please pass on that information to Taku Mineshita at Taku.Mineshita@dcyf.wa.gov.
