Family Reunification Program

Family Reunification ProgramThe Family Reunification Program (FRP) helps children adjust back into their family home from foster care. FRP is provided by a team consisting of a Team Leader and a Family Services Worker. The program lasts about four months. During the initial phase of services, the team leader and family services worker meets with the family in their home for 10-12 hours a week. After that, they meet for about four hours a week for the remainder of the program. Throughout the provision of FRP, the team is available to support the family 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

FRP is available to families living in Eaton, Ingham, Livingston, Calhoun, Branch, Hillsdale and Jackson counties. All families are referred to Highfields through the Department of Health and Human Services. Learn more about FRP at Michigan.gov.

My counselors were awesome 100% of the time! I couldn't have had two better people on my team to reach every goal and prepare me for my future as a great parent! I love them both and will miss them! 🙂 The organization in my home is much better! I feel they have made it a safer environment for both my son and I. They have also taught me many ways of dealing with my son's different behaviors! I had an amazing experience! I don't think I would be where I am at without the team I had! So THANK YOU!! – FRP Parent
