Crisis/Rapid Response Family Meetings

Crisis/Rapid Response Family Meetings are a core component of the Family Engagement Initiative.  The goal of either a Crisis Response Family Meeting (immediate to within 24 hours of the emergent event) or Rapid Response Family Meeting (within 72 hours of the emergent event) is to address the immediate concern that is leading to the need to remove the child from his/her home. This inclusive, family approach is designed to not only give family a voice, but to actively involve family in decision-making.
