Family Preservation Program

Family Preservation Program (FPP) is a short-term, family-based crisis intervention program designed to assist families in crisis by improving parenting and family functioning while keeping children safe. Centerstone recognizes that separating children from their families is often traumatic, and we seek to avoid these measures through therapeutic interventions and support.

The program is designed to help at-risk families by positively intervening to keep children safe so they can remain in their homes. To qualify for FPP services, families must be referred by the Department for Community Based Services and be at imminent risk of child removal or have a child in foster care returning home, and reside in the following Kentucky counties:

  • Allen
  • Barren
  • Butler
  • Edmonson
  • Hart
  • Logan
  • Metcalfe
  • Monroe
  • Simpson
  • Warren

Kentucky’s FPP has been successful in reducing re-entry into out-of-home care, accelerating family reunification and promoting family well-being.

Funding for this program is in whole or in part from federal, CHFS, or other state funds.
