Together Lives Change is predicated on the notion that children are best serviced in their families and in their communities. To achieve this goal, the Family Supportive Services Worker is committed to assessing the needs of the family. The worker will assist the parent in scheduling and transporting to medical, dental, psychological and psychiatric appointments. TLC will monitor school attendance, grades and disciplinary actions of the children. The worker will also utilize applicable services offered by the Department of Human Services. Resources in the community that are beneficial to the maintenance of the family such as Section 8, Housing and Re-development Authority, Department of Motor Vehicles, Parks and Recreation and Daycare Agencies will be utilized. TLC will work in tandem with the referring agency to communicate the progress of the case and address any specific concerns to prevent foster care placement.
