FY19: This program completed its first full fiscal year on June 30, 2019. In July 2019, the Family Service Worker (FSW) who helped to establish this program, left for another home visiting program. Both programs are housed in the same facility. In an effort to prevent families from disengaging from services, the former home visitor maintained home visits until a new FSW was hired in late October 2019. The former FSW trained the new FSW and provided a warm hand off to families during this transition. The new FSW attended required PAT Training in December 2019. Because of the former FSWs actions, the program was able to maintain service to 13 families.
