Continuum of Care

The Landmarks for Families continuum of care starts with Parent Education and Support. Parenting classes, relationship-building workshops, support groups, family therapy, and summer literacy camps are among the services Landmarks for Families delivers to support and educate children and families. Family Preservation and Reunification services are delivered in the home and are designed to keep families together and support them through transitions and times of struggle. Families can heal, become resilient, and thrive by strengthening family relationships, providing guidance and establishing structures that ensure safety and connections. Rounding out our continuum of care, Residential Services are available when children need a safe place to stay, heal, learn, and grow. Landmarks for Families is committed to the well-being of children and families at all moments because all journeys take different paths.

Teaching Family Model

Landmarks for Families utilizes the Teaching-Family Model®, an evidence-based system of care that prioritizes therapeutic relationships with caregivers as the primary conduit of effective treatment in supportive family-style settings. This model is rooted in cognitive behavioral theory and provides effective individualized and trauma-informed treatment services to children, youth, adults, and families.

Family-style Relationships

The model sees family-style relationships as essential to the healthy development of social, relational and interpersonal skills. It can be used with a range of diagnoses and symptoms, as well as with those who have experienced significant trauma, maltreatment, and loss.

This philosophy is integrated throughout our continuum of care and allows our organization to provide effective, holistic services to the children and families in our community.
