Sib-Link: Sibling Referral Form for South Carolina
Enhancing Sibling Contact through monthly, high quality sibling visits.
The program complements current efforts and is used as the re-unification plan falls apart, when resources stress, and additional measures are needed to restore sibling bonds.
At this point, should child advocates and the siblings feel an additional, routine monthly sibling visit would be of great value, consider a referral for Sib-Link. Our program manager reviews the application and coordinates sibling visits that encourage team building, problem solving, and long-term relationships among sibling sets.
Sib-Link program managers will need help in transport, and will ask for everyone’s support on this matter. Support is always needed for children living over 75 miles away and for any child under 36 months old. Thank you.
Visits will be monitored by the Sib-Link program manager and another adult familiar with the children: case worker / supervisor, caregiver, CASA / Guardian ad Litem, or counselor. This "two adult" approach creates a safe, supportive environment.
The Sib-Link program manager will email a 2-4 paragraph visit report to the entire case team within 3 days of each visit.
We commit to doing all we reasonably can to maintain this additional visit(s) each month, for the benefit of the children.
1. Any child advocate can fill out form: Case Team, CASA/ GAL, Caregiver, Family, Friend.
2. Sib-Link Manager decides whether to take case, in consultation with Advocate, Social Service Worker and Supervisor.
3. Sib-Link Manager engages all parties and sets up first visit.
