Family Preservation Policy and Program Approaches Family Preservation Policy and Program Approaches An ongoing challenge in the child welfare field has been managing the potential conflict between partnering with families to prevent out-of-home placement or reunifying children with their families while also addressing safety concerns. Federal laws such as the Adoption and Safe Families Act and amendments to the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act called for a better balance between protecting children and preserving families. More recent legislation and policy guidance have sought to refocus program and practice efforts on ensuring child well-being and family connections as well as attending to safety and permanency. Within this context, there remains considerable confusion about the essential elements of family preservation services and which types of programs fall into this category.
We were founded originally in as the Ratepayers Association and Preservation Society, but became a charity in with the object of preserving and improving the village, its amenities and rural surroundings.
What have we done? RPS and its predecessors have played a pivotal role in Rottingdean life over the last century.
In the s we took over the responsibility for the Windmill, which had fallen into disrepair, and restored it. Inwe purchased the Kipling Gardens, threatened by development, and in leased the Museum at The Grange and prevented its sale by Brighton Council.
All these initiatives have changed the face of the village and contribute to its attraction as a tourist destination.
What do we do now? Our current activities continue to promote village life by maintaining the Windmill and opening it to the public, working with BHCC to improve the facilities in the Kipling Gardens, and encourage a range of Events and Exhibitions at The Grange.

Family preservation was the movement to help keep children at home with their families rather than in foster homes or institutions. This movement was a reaction to the earlier policy of family breakup, which pulled children out of unfit homes. Extreme poverty alone was seen as a justified reason to remove children.
This new movement began in the s, and in the White House Conference on.
