Family Urgent Response System (FURS) - Imperial County
The Family Urgent Response System (FURS) is a free 24/7/365 hotline for current and former foster youth and their caregivers to get immediate support from trauma- informed trained counselors for big or small challenges creating instability or threatening their current placement. A local Mobile Response Team will be assigned to provide critical face-to-face support in home and/or community when needed.
The purpose of the Mobile Response System Team is to:
Provide collaborative, trauma-informed supportive services to address situations of instability
Preserve the relationship between the caregiver and the child or youth
Develop healthy conflict resolution and relationship skills
Mitigate the distress of the child, youth, or caregiver and promote healing as a family
Stabilize the situation and preserve placement
The team will help connect the caregiver, child, or youth to the existing array of services and supports in their community. Follow-up care will be provided to ensure the family's needs are met and the child, youth, or caregiver feel safe.
Current and previous foster youth ages 0-21 years old and their caregivers residing in Imperial County.
