LOUIS, MO / PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 26, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Juvenile Justice Center of Philadelphia (JJC) has partnered with Global Vision Technologies (GVT) to implement FAMCare , GVT’s web-based, child welfare and family services case management software solution – to help them improve upon an already successful operation. JJC is a non-profit, multi-service agency that serves the needs of at-risk children, youth and families.
With FAMCare, the team at JJC will be able to convert their current "paper-based" system into a streamlined, secure electronic system – opening up new opportunities and innovations that can benefit the children and families under their care. With improved information availability, accessibility, and security, JJC caseworkers can now manage their cases more efficiently and decisions can be made faster based on real-time, accurate intelligence. JJC will also leverage FAMCare’s built-in e-learning management module, OmniTrackPlus to systemize delivery of caseworker training, reducing their overall training management costs.
"Having detailed web-based client documentation, full-tracking, a training system and being able to eliminate duplicate work will be a big help to us. When we get audited… it will be very clear what we’re doing, how we’re doing it and how much time we’re spending on cases. We’ve done amazingly well up until now – and FAMCare will only improve upon an already successfully program", said Sheila Armstrong McGee, Program Director IHPS.
JJC went through a rigorous selection process and evaluated a number of vendors before choosing FAMCare . FAMCare was selected for its flexibility, ease of use and speed. "FAMCare, a secure, web-based child welfare and human services case management solution helps improve agency execution. Where it really helps is in data management. In order for an agency to be successful – they have to have a good handle on their data. We’re extremely proud to have JJC join our family of clients," said George Ritacco, Executive Director, Client Services at GVT.
JJC’s mission is to maintain families through supportive services, to prevent children and youth from being placed in care, and to ready families for reunification with their children. In respect of those severely neglected, abused, abandoned or seriously delinquent children for whom care is essential – JJC provides caring foster and residential care, combined with supportive services.
Some of the services JJC provides are: family stabilization services, home based delinquent services, services to foster children, in-home protective services, behavioral health services, department of permanency planning, residential services and the HOPE charter school for at-risk youth.
