The SafeCare Program is an evidenced-based parent training program for parents with children ages birth to 5 that are involved with child protective and child welfare services.  The purpose is to control threats to child safety so children can remain safely in their homes with their caregivers.  SafeCare is delivered in the home and is shown to reduce maltreatment.  It assists families needing help in creating a safe home environment for their young children and for parents wanting to improve structure and routines.  A home visitor works with the family on new parenting skills, child health, home safety, and parent-child interactions.  SafeCare is delivered over a period of about 18-20 weeks and each visit lasts about 60-90 minutes.
