How we Work
- Empower Families receive referral (referral form) from you with the family’s permission to be contacted.
- We contact the family and arrange a meeting, either in their home, at the school or in our office (Bridging the Gap)
- We work on an action plan with the family, highlighting specific needs and then connect those needs with appropriate services.
- We facilitate referrals to other services and manage engagement with them.
