When your family needs help, we're just a phone call away. Through the Community Partners for Safe Families, SCAN, with local social service agencies, offers parents help with situations that are interfering with their ability to manage their families. The goal of Community Partners is to provide families with in-home, one-on-one services that strengthen the family and prevent child abuse or neglect. Community Partners services are offered by expert providers in every county it serves. All members of Community Partners work together to make sure a family's individual needs are met. Whether it's a short-term housing crisis, or assistance in handling a mentally ill family member, coping with out-of-control children, or providing assistance in stressful situations, Community Partners can help. Families can participate in the program for up to six months. Service can be renewed once original goals are reached. Community Partners for Safe Families offers help to families living in the following counties: Elkhart, Kosciusko, Marshall and St. Joseph. You can call Community Partners yourself for assistance, or be referred by another person or agency. Some of the common reasons parents call Community Partners for Safe Families include: * housing crises, pending evictions, homelessness. * ongoing transportation problems that put employment and/or schooling at risk. * family members are experiencing mental health problems. * parents are overwhelmed and are having difficulty managing their children and home. * children in crisis because of parents' job loss, death in the family, or divorce. * domestic violence situations. * children with ongoing truancy and behavior problems which affect the entire family. * children who are reported to be unsupervised.

All workshops and seminars are age appropriate. Our specially-trained presenters work with school children ages 3-18 and adults throughout northeast Indiana. The goals of these workshops are: 1.
