The Family Development Matrix Outcomes Model/Pathway to the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect project (FDM Pathway) is funded by the Office of Child Abuse Prevention (OCAP) and is becoming an integral part of the family engagement and assessment processes for 90 family support centers across California. The FDM Pathway is built on the principles of family support and shared across family resource centers (FRCs) that are organized in county collaboratives or tribal communities. This article describes the role of FRCs in using the FDM Pathway process for family assessment and case management, the positive outcomes achieved, interventions used between 2008-2011, and initial findings on the impact of family engagement.
