Comprehensive Child and Family Assessment (CCFA)
The Comprehensive Child and Family Assessment, completed on behalf of the Department of Family and Children Services, is used to gather information from the family, caregivers, foster parents, prospective placement resources and other important parties. The gathered information is used to assist with developing a case plan, determining the needs of the child(ren) and family, and identifying services that would help assure safety, permanency, and the overall well-being of the child(ren) and family.
Home evaluations are completed to determine an appropriate placement for children to live when they are removed from their home. The assessment, typically of the child(ren)’s biological family, determines if the placement will be a secure, safe, and permanent environment for the child(ren) . The evaluation also addresses whether the caretaker is able to ensure the well-being of the child(ren) and meet the child(ren)’s needs.
Nursing assessments provide a plan of care that identifies the specific needs of our person served and how those needs will be addressed by the skilled RN and other clinic staff.
Substance Use Disorder (SUD)
