This year marked the 25th anniversary of the National Family Preservation Network (NFPN). During this year we released a training video for the NCFAS-G+R assessment tool, provided a web database for the assessment tools in cooperation with Integrated Imaging, produced a video on substance abuse and in-home services, and began planning for our next 25 years!
We’re excited to have served as the primary national voice for the preservation of families for over two decades and to continue doing so in the future. Next year we will be working on a nationwide rural opioid project to find out how rural areas are addressing this issue and how we can help strengthen and preserve families caught up in this epidemic.
The opioid epidemic has also created renewed interest in reunifying families and father involvement and NFPN has resources, training, and technical assistance available in those areas. In addition to substance abuse, blog posts in 2017 also addressed suicide and mental health as NFPN moves more into the behavioral and mental health arena.
Thank you for everything you do on behalf of families.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
