About Our Services
Plummer and the Department of Children and Families (DCF) share a similar philosophy; we both believe that for young people to become successful adults, they must have a family that is unconditionally committed to them and able to nurture, protect and guide them.
Plummer Youth Promise proudly offers an Intensive Permanency Services program to DCF. We work with youth with goals of reunification, adoption, guardianship, independent living, and kinship care.
Intensive Permanency Services are provided to DCF youth aged birth-22 living in various settings and levels of care. This program focuses on youth experiencing significant barriers in their pursuit for permanency. We deploy Specialty Permanency Social Workers to work directly with the youth and their clinical team to find family.
Youth served in our IPS program
Young people and their families served, Plummer-wide
Our Intensive Permanency Services includes three essential strategies – Family Search and Engagement, Youth Guided Teaming and Permanency Readiness – all designed to successfully connect and integrate young people with a forever family.
The best practices applied in IPS are the same as those used with great success with youth in our Foster Care and Group Programs. In addition, our permanency work has gained national attention, and we teach permanency best practices to other organizations across the country through our Strategic Consulting Team.
