Keeping children safe at home.

Intensive In-Home Services (IIS) are for families whose children are at immediate risk of being removed from the home due to mental illness, emotional disturbances, substance abuse, behavior disorders, neglect, abuse or family violence. IIS provides immediate, intensive, short-term, in-home crisis intervention and family education when families need it the most. 

Our team is trained in strengths-based, solution-focused therapy and certified in trauma-informed care. Through this 4–6 week program, staff will provide 8-10 hours (or more if needed) of individualized immediate services to families directly in their home. In addition, staff are available to their families 24/7 for additional support and guidance. During the program we also provide information and support to encourage the growth and advancement of life skills that will benefit the family far beyond the program completion date.
