The Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) of New Mexico is seeking proposals for adoption promotion and family support services.
The Promoting Safe and Stable Families Grant enables CYFD to develop and operate coordinated programs of community based family support services, family preservation services, time-limited reunification services as well as adoption promotion and support services to accomplish the following objectives:
- Prevent child maltreatment among families at risk through the provision of supportive family services;
- Assure children’s safety within the home and preserve families in which children have been maltreated, when the family’s problems can be addressed effectively;
- Address the problems of families whose children have been placed in foster care so that reunification may occur in a safety and stable manner in accordance with the Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) of 1997; and
- Support adoptive families by providing support services as necessary so that they can make a lifetime commitment to their children.
