Handling An Investigation: Where to Turn

The system can be a source of support or stress to families. Some parents get support from the system’s “preventive services”-free programs designed to strengthen families and prevent kids from ending up in foster care. Other parents get to know the system through a knock on the door-the beginning of an investigation.

In this issue, parents write about what helped them, whether it was a preventive worker whose support kept their family together, or a lawyer who fought to get their children returned home.
