How is the Thriving Germantown Program designed?

Family Services Coordinators (FSC)  provide comprehensive family risk assessments and develop intervention plans within a "pathways" model, offering concrete steps toward problem resolution and resource linkage.  Each FSC provides intensive casework and case management services, which includes the following:
  • Home visits
  • Regular follow-up with the child and their family
  • Outreach
  • Advocacy with community resources
FSC's build trusting, culturally respectful relationships in environments where families are most comfortable.  The FSC's identify needed services, prepare and refer families to additional resources with concrete action steps, problem solve with families to overcome any barriers which may hinder the ability to access referrals, and connect families to the appropriate resources with consistent and routine follow-up.

Each FSC specializes in a specific risk area, which includes: Early Care & Education, Health & Wellness, Behavioral Health, and Household Sustainability (Economic Sustainability and Emergency Assistance).
