DCF funds a statewide network of Family Success Centers as “one-stop” shops that provide wrap-around resources and supports for families before they find themselves in crisis.  Family Success Centers offer primary and secondary child abuse prevention services to families and bring together concerned community residents, leaders, and community agencies to address the problems that threaten the safety and stability of families and the community. DCF has partnered with the Nicholson Foundation and the City of Newark, the site of Family Success Centers in three Newark housing projects.  There is no cost to access services provided by Family Success Centers. Core services include:

  • Access to information on child, maternal and family health services, including linkage to publicly-funded health insurance programs and referrals to local health care services;
  • Development of  “Family Success” plans, which address strengths and challenges and goals to address challenges which threaten to undermine family stability;
  • Economic self-sufficiency/employment related services/income security services;
  • Information & Referral Services (connection to off-site public and private resources);
  • Life Skills training (budgeting, nutrition, etc.);
  • Housing  related services;
  • Parent education;
  • Parent-child activities;
  • Advocacy;
  • Home visiting, consistent with the model of engagement approved by DCF's Family and Community Partnerships.
