Read The Lincy Institute 3-5-7 Model Issue Brief to learn about indicators of well-being associated with fidelity to the 3-5-7 Model®.


During the past several years, the 3-5-7 Model® has become an integral practice engagement strategy to support the work of young people and all of their families to build permanency relationships.  As a directional, guided approach, this practice model provides tools for professionals and caregiver parents to understand the stories of loss, trauma, and abandonment that each child carries with them from poor parenting experiences.  Through training, coaching and consultation, agencies  implementing the 3-5-7 Model® are seeing significant shifts in the behaviors of children and young people through grief and relationship building activities.  An additional outcome has been increased worker satisfaction among those using the concepts and tools of the model.  Join us as we continue to expand this very exciting and successful approach to assuring well-being and permanency in relationships for children and their families who have been challenged by family traumas.  We encourage you to contact us with questions about the model and our programs and to discuss how we can support your work.

Here’s what people are saying:

We are still new at using 3-5-7 Model but over the past year we have seen tremendous growth from the case workers who are practicing. They are developing stronger relationships and engagement skills with the children/youth they are working with . . . and their contact with their children/youth now has more meaningful purpose. Case workers are excited about their enhanced skills and improved relationships with their children/youth.
Coaching sessions are very supportive and model a safe environment for case workers to learn and develop their skills. We all learn from the group coaching sessions.
This model truly helps to bring back the field of social work back to where it needs to be—directly with the family. But further, it now includes the information, knowledge, tangible tools, and clarity of HOW to effectively help children- and families- to “do the work”.
This model is amazing & has changed lives! I’ve seen it happen!
