Child Welfare & Family Services
TASC works in partnership with child welfare and other social service systems across Illinois, to help youth and families get the services they need to become healthy and productive.
Under leadership of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), TASC provides intensive case management services to parents whose children have been placed in foster care because of charges related to substance abuse.
TASC Recovery Coaches work within the community to help involved parents access a full continuum of services including substance abuse or mental health treatment, parenting classes, individual or family counseling, and assistance with stable housing and employment. Proactive case management methods are utilized to engage, retain, promote, monitor, and report client progress. TASC makes recommendations regarding family permanency, and continues case management services post-permanency.
