Our Community Based Services
The Intensive In-Home Services Program is a community based intervention for at risk youth ages 3-18. The service includes comprehensive assessment and evaluation, individualized treatment planning, individual and family counseling, case management and crisis intervention. Each client is also encouraged to receive a health physical, dental exam and an eye exam to promote overall health. For admission into the Intensive In-Home program the identified youth must reside in the home at the start of care, and must demonstrate significant functional impairments in major life activities due to mental, emotional or behavioral illness. The goal is to keep the child with the family and prevent a removal from home. Services are provided primarily in the home, but may extend and include other community settings, i.e. school, court, or recreational facilities. Interventions are time limited and are provided according to youth and family need.
