New Life’s Family Finding Program
The Family Finding model, developed by Kevin A. Campbell, offers methods and strategies to locate and engage relatives of children currently living in out-of-home care. This innovative program locates and connects children with family, so that every child is able to benefit from the lifelong connections that only a family can provide.
Core beliefs inherent in this approach are:
- There is a family for EVERY child.
- Loneliness can be devastating, even dangerous, and is experienced by most children in out of home care.
- A meaningful connection to family helps a child develop a sense of belonging.
- The single factor most closely associated with positive outcomes for children is meaningful, lifelong connections to family.
New Life’s Family Finding Program creates options for support and planning for the child and family, while engaging family members and others important to the child. It brings identified and carefully screened family members and others who care about the child together to address lifelong need for support and affection.
