West Virginia Circle of Parents – pilot groups trained and underway across WV

Circle of Parents is a national network of parent-­led self-­help groups where parents and caregivers share ideas, celebrate successes and address the challenges surrounding parenting.  As the State Steering Committee for Service Array development, the WV System of Care State Implementation Team reviewed various models and endorsed Circle of Parents as the Parent Mutual Support Model to implement in West Virginia.
Prevent Child Abuse WV launched Circle of Parents in West Virginia in September 2012 by training facilitators from six organizations. The pilot phase of the project runs through June 2013, and training for additional groups and facilitators is planned for late spring of 2013.

Help for Youth Transitioning from Foster Care

IMM_logoResearch shows that young adults leaving the foster care system are more likely to experience financial hardship and other overwhelming challenges. Many are alone for the first time after years of out of home care.  It’s My Move is a West Virginia program that works with youth ages 16 – 21 years and offers a unique opportunity to live independently through social and adaptive living skills training in a supportive atmosphere.  The program’s website offers referral information for eligible youth, plus downloadable checklists, links and other self-help resources for any young person seeking the way to successful adult living.

History of West Virginia’s System of Care partnership

Featured

The West Virginia Commission to Study Residential Placements of Children was created by an act of the 2005 Legislature (HB 2334; Section 49-7-34 of WV Code), to achieve systemic reform for youth at risk of out-of-home residential placement, and to establish an integrated system of care for these youth and their families.

In 2006, the Commission designated the West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources to provide oversight and implement the recommendations of the Commission, and to develop a statewide System of Care Implementation Team in order to direct, oversee and monitor all activities related to developing a System of Care for children and their families.
