What is Home-Based Children’s Services?

Home-Based Services provide intensive services to children and their families with multiple service needs requiring access to an array of mental health services. Treatment is based on the child’s needs, with the focus on the family unit.  Services are provided in the family home or community.

Primary Program Goals:

  • Support families in meeting the child’s developmental needs
  • Support and preserve families
  • Reunite families who have been separated
