Family Services Counseling




Table of Contents


Following a referral to Family Services Counseling, the Family Services counselor will complete an assessment to ascertain the existence of barriers, and will provide a clinical opinion within

two weeks as to how these barriers will affect the client’s ability to participate in a work requirement.  This information will come in a feedback form emailed to the work activity contractor.  The assessment category will be indicated as well as the number of weekly participation hours, if any, and any other pertinent information necessary for the contractor to perform his/her job.


If the client does not have a work requirement, the FSC will provide feedback to the caseworker indicating whether or not the FSC will be working with the client.  No further details will be necessary as long as the client remains exempt from a work requirement.
