The Connecticut Family Stability Pay for Success Project is working to promote family stability and reduce parental substance use for DCF-involved families.
$11.5 million in private donations and capital funds will expand the family-based recovery program to 500 more Connecticut families over the next four years. The goal is to keep kids with their recovering parents and out of foster care.
The program was developed a decade ago by the Yale Child Study Center with a cut-off age of three years old, and is being expanded to cover children up to age six. There is currently a waiting list. The project is designed to help ensure family stability and keep children with their parents.
The expanded program will create six new family recovery teams and will reach new areas, including Waterbury, Danbury, Torrington, Norwich, the Middletown region, and New Haven.
