About Family Reunification
.FLV (Flash Videos)
The child welfare system is designed to serve as a child-centered, family serving institution designed to bring hope to families in need of support. Reunifying children with their loved ones, when it is safe to do so, is critical to the well-being of children, their families, communities and our society.
Family Reunification Week
Through Family Reunification Week, we hope to inform the public what the child welfare system does day in, day out – strengthening families with the necessary supports enabling the family to safely remain intact. During Family Reunification Week, all of Los Angeles County will celebrate those families, who through their hard work and with the assistance of dedicated social workers, lawyers, community partners, and child welfare professionals, have successfully overcome the challenges they face and are moving on with their lives in a safe and healthy manner.
