A CMIS for the Mi familia program in Colombia
Intake point
Indirect registration
Mi Familia is directed toward three types of families:

(i) beneficiaries of programs of the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare (Instituto Colombiano de Bienestar Familiar, ICBF) aiming at protecting children from violence inside the family, or supporting children and teenagers with past involvement in crimes;

(ii) beneficiaries of public early childhood development (ECD) services and social programs directed to children and teenagers; and

(iii) families with children with disability, registered in the National System for Disability or identified as vulnerable by the Social Registry.

Registration normally takes place in municipalities. While the program is opened for registration by demand, beneficiaries are normally pre-identified by Mi Familia (this pre-identification is based on information from ICBF, ECD or other services or registries in which potential Mi Familia beneficiaries are already participating).
Level of case management
Case work
Mi Familia is an accompaniment program that provides tailored psychological support to promote children and teenagers’ development and mitigate the risks of growing up in a violent, abusive, or negligent family environment. It begins with an assessment (based on psychometric tests), followed by the preparation of a tailored accompaniment plan that includes psychological support and referrals to relevant program/services, home visits and group meetings and ends with a closing assessment to evaluate results. Referrals are a complementary service of the program, which mainly focuses on the implementation of tailored psychological support.
Population group served
Children and their families
Mi Familia supports families with children and teenagers. The program’s beneficiaries tend to be in the lower quintiles of income, but the program is not targeted at poor families.
