SafeCare is an evidence-based, parent-training program for parents of children ages 0-5 who are at-risk for or have been reported for child neglect or physical abuse.
SafeCare educators work with families in their homes to improve parents’ skills in three areas:
- parent-infant/child interaction skills
- health care skills
- home safety
SafeCare is typically conducted in weekly home visits lasting from 50-90 minutes each. The program typically consists of 18-20 sessions for each family. SafeCare can be conducted by itself, or with other services.
