Family Preservation Court

The Family Preservation Court (FPC) program is a voluntary, court-supervised, comprehensive treatment program for parents who have children involved in the dependency court system and Family and Children’s Services (also known as Child Welfare).

The mission of the Santa Cruz County Family Preservation Court is to assist all participants in their recovery process, acknowledging that recovery is a courageous choice that will benefit the entire family and the community as a whole.  We are committed to treating all participants with dignity and respect as they gain insight into their circumstances and practice the values that will keep them drug-free and allow them to safely parent their children. 

Participants engage in treatment, parenting education, and regular court appearances.  They also have the opportunity to receive family therapy and home visits through Child Welfare’s Leaps & Bounds program to promote parent-child well-being. 

This program is open to Child Welfare families only, through referral.
