Building on Strengths and Fostering Growth

Empower’s Family Support and Stabilization program is funded by the Department of Children and Families (DCF). FSS is designed to provide individual and family therapy, parent skills training, and unwavering support. Through clinical case management services and parental capacity evaluations, we deliver these essential, in-home services, emphasizing a solution-focused and strength-based approach.

Empower’s FSS program extends concrete assistance to help families navigate, advocate for, and collaborate with various systems and resources. Our dedicated FSS team works closely with DCF and other support providers, ensuring a comprehensive, wrap-around approach to service delivery.

The FSS clinical team includes Master’s and Bachelor’s level social workers with specialties in childhood behavior and development, trauma, substance abuse, and behavioral health issues. Our program has language capacity and access to translation services. Our clinicians are trained in the ARC (Attachment, Regulation, and Competency) model, a clinical intervention utilized to strengthen engagement.

We believe in the capacity and resilience of families to overcome and succeed.
