  3. 3. Adoption and Safe Families Act 1997  The Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997 aligns with the guided principles of the Florida Department of Children and Families but states that if a family has allegations of abuse or neglect, as it pertains to a child, then the child can be removed their biological family and relocated to another household such as, adoption and/or foster care (http://Laws.com). Even the child protective services of California even state the same, as it pertain to removing a child from an abusive environment and placed into a protective environment such as an adoptive and/or foster care (http://www.dss.cahwnet.gov).
  4. 4. Key Terms  In some cases, families may receive in-home services. In-Home services provides the family the assistance that they need in order to keep the child safely within the home. If the family receives assistance, then there is a possibility that abuse and neglect will be prevented (Rubin, 2011).  In other cases, families may receive Out-of-Home Services. These services are provided when it has been legally decided to remove the child from the home is for the safety of the child (Rubin, 2011).
