Intensive In-Home Services

 

Providing clinical support to reduce the risk of out-of-home placement

Intensive In-Home Services* are flexible, clinical support services for children and youth with behavioral and emotional challenges, under the age of 21, who are at risk of removal from their home or who are being transitioned back into their home from an out-of-home placement. Our qualified Mental Health Professionals provide services such as individual and family therapy, coping skills, stress reduction, problem solving and allied therapies like art, play, drama and music.

Our staff is trained in diverse therapeutic approaches that work to strengthen the family structure. Our goal is to help provide overall stability and support that will encourage the family’s group functionality and allow them to encompass a better understanding of community resources.
