Services Affirming Family Empowerment (SAFE)

The SAFE team receives referrals and designs individualized, collaborative interventions.  The goals of SAFE are: 

  • To reduce the number of children requiring out of home care such as foster home, group homes or hospitalization
  • To reduce recidivism in Probation involved youth
  • To improve school attendance; and to stabilize the child in their own home. 

The SAFE team is comprised of the family, staff from the Behavioral Health Department, Department of Social Services, Probation, County Office of Education and various School Districts, The Link, CAPSLO, and other community agencies.

This service is available throughout the year during regular business hours except during scheduled holidays.
