Internship Opportunity: 360 Caregiver Self-Appraisal

Down Arrow Scroll

360° Caregiver Self-Appraisal is an initiative that Partnership for Strong Families developed in order to give birth parents a platform to assess their own Caregiver Protective Capacities.

  • Caregiver Protective Capacities are personal and caregiving characteristics that specifically can be associated with being protective.  Caregiver Protective Capacities are directly related to behavioral, cognitive and emotional characteristics that can be observed, reported and measured.
  • Caregiver Protective Capacities cause parents to respond to situations, conditions and people who may create unsafe conditions or situations for their children.
  • We have found that we can do a better job at returning children to birth parents when birth parents are able to identify, communicate and demonstrate how their protective capacities are being enhanced as a result of intervention, treatment  and services!
  • Partnership for Strong Families is looking for interns who would work directly with birth parents towards enhancing caregiver protective capacities that are diminished and are directly related to a child being unsafe.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the Philanthropy Hub link here.
