Mom reported that her son has consistently had more positive days at school since FSB services began. She reported that both her and the father have become more focused on building a relationship with their son, and make an effort to do attachment-building activities with him. The mother reported feeling thankful that services came into their home and hopeful because their family has changed significantly. She stated that DHS’ involvement in their life was worth it, due to the positive changes in their family dynamics.

Your consultant’s dedication to this family has been crucial. She has been a great advocate for the family, helping them to establish housing and get back some confidence the client lost due to being involved with our agency (DHS). I’m really lucky to have her on my team.
