KEEP

Organized by
Options Counseling and Family Services
Description

KEEP is a FREE support group for certified resource and kinship parents with active placements ages 3+. It’s designed to enhance skills while supporting each family on their individual journey. It’s 16 weeks; we meet once a week, and groups are 90 minutes.

KEEP curriculum is evidence based with a trauma informed lens. Our facilitators bring in weekly lessons focusing on things like looking at challenging behaviors, introducing new skills, balancing encouragers and setting limits, promoting peer and school success, and managing stress.

Although psychoeducation is a big component, KEEP strives to provide very warm and non-judgmental space where local resource and kinship parents can have frank conversations, share personal experiences, exchange resources, and find ways to stay connected beyond 16 weeks that we are directly involved with them.

KEEP TAG- for families with a toddler placement (ages 3-4)

KEEP standard- for families with placement 4-12

KEEP SAFE- for families with a placement of 13-18.

Our groups are small and intimate. A typical group is between 6-7 families with two facilitators. KEEP offers other great benefits. Earn up to 24 educational credits towards your recertification hours. Additionally, earn $25 per session, that is up to $400 that is available per family per group.

We look forward to connect with each family and get them started with their KEEP Support Group!
