Family Support is a pre-placement prevention program based in ten Albemarle County elementary schools and three middle schools.

Family Support staff provides case management services including assisting families with access to health, education, legal, housing and social services, improving the safety and security of their family members; helping families move toward self-sufficiency and ensuring parents and school staff work together for successful school performance outcomes. There is also an emphasis on supporting school attendance and facilitating summer enrichment opportunities for the children.

The Family Support Mission is to provide prevention and intervention services that support children's growth and development, strengthen families and promote school success through home, school and community collaboration.
