THE PATH TO EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM
The Path to Empowerment Program (PEP) is individualized and based on the unique needs of each youth and family and follows the twelve principles of the Arizona model. Services begin by the development of a individualized service plan approved by the Child and Family Team (CFT). An initial assessment defines the areas of greatest behavioral/social deficits that the youth and family are currently experiencing and outlines recommended interventions. Progress and program effectiveness will be measured by access to quicker supports in the home while helping to decrease out-of-home requests and hospitalizations, while preserving placements and keeping children in the home and helping families achieve greater independence.

We also collaborate with the Arizona Department of Child Safety to provide families involved in child welfare with comprehensive service plans which integrate all aspects of care and treatment.
