Knox County Safe Baby Court is looking for agency partners to provide visitation support to our families. Partners will be trained in the Guided Interaction for Family Time (GIFT) model to become certified GIFT Coaches. The GIFT visitation model creates partnerships between parents and Family Time Coaches to develop and carry out focused, nurturing time with infants and toddlers. GIFT engages the entire family unit in building on their natural strengths and identifying their areas of growth to repair and support attachment between children and their primary caregivers. GIFT Coaches would be matched with a family and provide supervised family time for 2 hours twice per week over the course of 8-12 weeks.
If your agency is interested in learning more about the GIFT training, please email Kaki.Reynolds@Knoxcounty.org.
