What is a Family Team Conference?

A place for family members to work in partnership with the agency.

To identify:
• family strengths
• problem areas
• solutions

Focuses on the safety and needs of the child & family.

Family is a partner in creating their case plan. 

Why have a Family Team Conference?

A group can often be more effective in making good decisions than an individual.

Families are the experts on themselves.

When families are included in decision making, they are capable of identifying their own needs and strengths.

Valuable information is shared about the child(ren) and the family. 

When does Family Team Conferencing occur?

• attempting to keep the children in their parent’s home.
• reunifying children with their families.
• a youth is emancipating.



We value your family’s involvement in creating your case plan.
