Mobile Stabilization Services
CFSA is excited to announce a new partnership with PSI Family Services and Catholic Charities to provide "Mobile Stabilization Services" to foster parents who may experience destabilizing situations with children in their homes. This service will be available 24/7 to provide stabilization/intervention when needed with the goal of preserving the placement. CFSA envisions this service to increase placement stability and reduced subsequent placements with the result of also reducing trauma to the child.
CFSA families: This service is currently active and provided by PSI Family Services. When needing to access the service, CFSA parents should contact their social worker or support worker during the business day and CFSA Placement Services at 202- 497-2487 in the evenings and weekends (or if you can't reach your social worker or support worker during the day).
Private agency families: This service will be implemented on January 6, 2014 by Catholic Charities. You will be able to access this service through the on-going crisis support process at your agency.
For more information about either service please contact Robert L. Matthews at 202-724-8943.
