|Title:||Court Liaison - PT - Rising Strong|
|Dept:||23 - Rising Strong|
The Rising Strong program is collaboration between Catholic Charities and Empire Health Foundation. Based on proven models, Rising Strong focuses on serving families who are at risk for separation due to parental substance abuse by providing safe housing, substance abuse treatment, case management, and other supportive wraparound services. By serving whole families, our aim is to reduce trauma in children, decrease the rates of foster care placements, and remove barriers that traditionally prevent parents from succeeding in substance abuse treatment. We walk alongside and support vulnerable families as they seek to change their stories.
The Court Liaison is responsible for education and advocacy for our families involved in the Criminal Court system, in addition to their involvement with the Juvenile Court System. The Court Liaison attends court hearings with parents, and educates parents on the court processes and their options. The Court Liaison collaborates with families and court professionals to ensure parents can meet their court requirements while staying engaged in Rising Strong treatment requirements. Additionally, the Court Liaison also assists parents with navigating child support requirements and the Relicensing Program.
