Home Safety Program Guidelines

  1. This program is free for families with demonstrated need who reside in McKean County. Pennsylvania.
  2. The Home Safety Program was made available through grant funding; the funding necessitates that CARE for Children track item use by family/zip code.
  3. If smoke detectors and/or a carbon monoxide detector is requested, the referring professional is required to provide basic education regarding optimal safety item placement in the home and to review the family evacuation plan (which are included with the safety items).
  4. As a referring professional, you are asked to help the family determine which safety items are needed for the household, have a responsible, adult family member sign the consent to receive the items, and follow up with the family within 30-60 days to ensure that the items are in use.
  5. CARE for Children staff will follow up with the referral source, via phone, to determine if the items are in use, and with the family via a short survey to gauge the impact, if any, of the safety items; and attitudes and knowledge of home/child safety issues after 60 days.
  6. Participation in any of CARE for Children of Safe Kids Pennsylvania programs is voluntary.
