“Helping Generations, One Individual at a Time”

PURPOSE:

TO HELP FAMILIES SOLVE PROBLEMS WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF THEIR FAMILIES RATHER THAN THROUGH PLACEMENT OUTSIDE THE HOME. SERVICES ARE BASED ON THE TENANT THAT THE FAMILY IS THE MOST POWERFUL SOCIAL INSTITUTION AND THAT FAMILIES SHOULD BE SUPPORTED AND MAINTAINED WHENEVER POSIBLE. THE INTENSIVE IN-HOME PROGRAM SEEKS TO DEVELOP, SUPPORT, AND EMPOWER THE FAMILY UNIT BY TEACHING PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS, ASSISTING PARENTS IN BECOMING ADVOCATES FOR THEMSELVES, AND COORDINATION OF AVAILABLE COMMUNITY RESOURCES. THE PROGRAM BRINGS SERVICES INTO THE HOME AND DEVELOPS A COMPREHENSIVE TRATMENT PLAN TO ADDRESS THE FAMILY’S PRACTICAL AND MATERIAL DIFFICULTIES TOGETHER WITH THEIR PSYCHOLOGICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT NEEDS. INTENSIVE IN-HOME SERVICES ARE PROVIDED 5 TO 15 HOURS PER WEEK FOR A MAXIMUM OF SIX (6) MONTHS PER YEAR. 

The long-lasting love of a family is more healing than a band-aid could ever be.
