The main focus of intensive in-home services is to provide frequent and structured mental health support in the home of a child who is at risk of being removed from the home. The program provides aid and assistance to the family in accessing needed services to prevent removal from the home. This can include linkage to educational services, psychiatric services, psychological services, medical services, social services and/or legal services. Intensive In-Home Services will also include interventions tailored to strengthen the family’s capacity to function effectively. This service is not intended to take the place of outpatient therapy or case management.
