LINKS Time-Limited Family Reunification

Supporting parents who are working toward reunification with their children in foster care


Our LINKS Family Reunification program assists and supports birth parents in addressing goals outlined by Bucks County Children & Youth Social Services Agency in working toward reunification with their children. As our staff work to reunite families, we also connect parents with other community resources that will support them in preventing re-placement of their children in care and in maintaining long-term stability.

 

Who We Serve

Families receiving our reunification services typically have significant issues to overcome in order to be reunited. These issues may include:

  • Substance abuse
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Parent/child mental health issues
  • Inappropriate housing

Often times families exhibit a combination of these problems which have led to the placement of their child(ren) into the foster care system.

Location

Our staff work with parents, usually right in their homes, to get the family back together within the first fifteen months of a child being placed in foster care.

The LINKS Time-Limited Family Reunification program is a partnership between Family Service, The Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency and the Bucks County Behavioral Health System.

10,252 children were removed from their homes and placed in foster care in PA in 2012.
