Denny cared for the children the best way he knew how for five years. When he started to miss medical appointments for the youngest, DSS got involved. A referral to Thompson led to a Family Partner being assigned. Denny agreed to services and is thankful for the Family Partner’s support. The family received household essentials, school clothes, and a referral for food support. With the support and care of the Family Partner during Child and Family Team meetings and court hearings, Denny can now advocate for his family.
