Front Porch – Prevention Referrals

    Each year, Child Welfare Services receives close to 5,000 reports.  For most of those calls, CWS does not need to open a case, but the family still desperately needs help. Those cases are referred to CALM’s Front Porch Program.  CALM works to keep the family on the “front porch” so they don’t have to enter “the system.” CALM provides a short term home visitation and case management program designed to address family risk factors by connecting the family to supportive services. It is only available to families who have been referred by Child Welfare Services following a report of abuse or neglect in situations where CWS has determined that their own services are not warranted.

    Referrals from Child Welfare Services only.

    CALM prides itself on its commitment to clinical excellence. In addition to the quality of our staff, our very experienced clinical leadership, and our long history of preventing and treating childhood trauma, this commitment is embodied in the training, assessment and evaluation programs we employ in our work. Our clinicians used evidence based treatment, interventions that have been tested and are proven to work.
