S.A.F.E. Home Study
Structured Analysis Family Evaluation [S.A.F.E.] is a home study methodology that was designed to evaluate families for adoption, foster care licensure, concurrent planning, and relative placement. SAFE is built upon social work practice values that stress the importance of engaging families in a mutual evaluation process that strives to include families, not exclude.
SAFE facilitates clear objectives. And because judgments are quantified, change is easy to measure over time.
