National REUNIFICATION MONTH

National Reunification Month is celebrated in June of each year to recognize the people and efforts that help families stay together. It is also a time to celebrate the families who have overcome obstacles to providing a safe and loving home for their children and are able to reunify after their child was placed in the child welfare system.

In 2020, 42% of CASA case closures were the result of reunification with parents or primary caretakers or children and youth remaining with parents throughout the life of the case. Additionally, Court Advocates for Children focuses on and recognizes the importance of family preservation and/or reunification.

Court Advocates for Children understands:
  • It is in a child’s best interests to remain with their family of origin when safely possible;
  • The program acknowledges that children experience trauma when separated from their family of origin; and
  • If a child is removed from their family of origin, it is in the child’s best interests to be reunified with their family of origin as soon as safely possible.
