WELCOME

The Council for Union County Families focuses on strengths-based, family-centered processes through:

  • Information & Referrals

  • Service Coordination

  • High-Fidelity Wraparound

  • Parent Peer Support

  • Community-Response Teams

our priorities include

  • Enhance the operation and delivery of the full continuum of care.

  • Increase family stability and connection to community resources

  • Increase use of data to inform our work and share our story

ELIGIBILITY

Children/youth who are residents of Union County, ages 0 through 21, with complex needs who have been involved in two or more of the following systems within the last 90 days, whose needs are not being adequately met, and who have reached a level of urgency requiring additional service coordination.  
 

The youth must be involved in two (2) or more of the following systems:  

  • Enrolled in a Union County school system with a 504 Plan or IEP

  • Local mental health agency

  • Juvenile Court or Probation

  • The Board of Developmental Disabilities 

  • Department of Job and Family

  • Child Protective Services or Adoption/Foster Care 

  • Early Intervention/Help Me Grow

Service Coordination or High-Fidelity Wraparound programs may also be considered for single-system youth who are at imminent risk of out-of-home placement in a more restrictive setting as determined by an initial and ongoing assessment.


CUCF does not offer transportation or financial assistance outside of the scope of Service Coordination and Wraparound. CUCF cannot offer utility or rental assistance, however, CUCF can offer a list of community resources that can assist with these needs.  

honor

Exploring and honoring the experiences of those participating in our programs allows for a deeper understanding of what is important to the youth and families being served. In sharing their stories, families should feel affirmed, their knowledge valued, and their resilience recognized.

respect

Families should feel respected and appreciated from their first contact with Council for Union County Families.

responsive

When we focus on need, we can empower helpers to understand the “why” of a situation and adjust their response to the why. Our Coordinators work to understand what is beneath a situation. They use this understanding to build bridges with community and service providers along with the family to come up with new ways to respond to the underlying causes. This creates a responsive versus reactive system.
