Family Wellness Program
CARECEN SF’s Family Wellness Program (FWP) aims to nurture, support and build community engagement by offering crisis management services and family advocacy to parents in our surrounding community. FWP case managers work closely with program participants to develop goals and work towards them through referrals and linkages to community and other resources; accompaniment to appoints; and support navigating educational, health, and other institutions. Case managers also strive to grow participants’ knowledge of community resources, increase understanding of systems and expand the skills of parents in order to enhance their ability to be effective advocates for themselves and their families.
FWP is part of a collaborative project with the Chicano/Latino Family Resource System – Mission Family Resource Center (CLFRS-MFRC) to provide effective family support. The collaborative project is made up of four agencies, Instituto Familiar de la Raza, the Mission Neighborhood Center, La Raza Community Resource Center and CARECEN SF. The purpose of the CLFRS-MFRC is to combine efforts to develop prevention, early intervention, and intensive case management programs and services to high-risk families living in the Mission District and Chicano/Latino families throughout San Francisco.
