Family Driven Care

Tools, Trainings & How-To's

Family Driven Care Means: Families have a primary decision-making role in the care of their own children, as well as the policies and procedures governing care for all children in their community and state. The family is defined as the person(s) who provides love, guidance, care, support and nurtures all members, especially  children. The family can be biological (birth parents), relative (also known as kinship), adoptive or foster family.
