Intensive In-home Services

Preferred Family Healthcare offers a very needed service called Intensive In-home Services (IIS). IIS are short-term crisis intervention services that occur within your very own home. Many people may chose this option when their families are at risk with the possibility of their children receiving out-of-home placement. IIS allows those families to remain together, supporting each other through a crisis situation. This program is unique in that it offers intervention and other services in a very flexible and adaptive way. 
Our services include:
  • Resolving child abuse/neglect
  • Promoting child and family safety
  • Parenting education
  • Child development training
  • Support to individual, families and couples
  • Sexual abuse, domestic violence, and substance abuse prevention education
  • Communication and negotiation skills
  • Home maintenance/housekeeping skills
  • Developing linkages with community resources
  • Job readiness skills
  • Other services that meet the specific needs of the family.

In our program, through referral, we focus our services to assist those families by responding immediately to a crisis, focusing on families' strengths, having 24 hour accessibility to specialists, and the knowledge to meet the needs of the family.

Sad and scared

If a referral is appropriate, then the family will be assigned to a specific specialist. The services provided are up to 20 hours per week and range from 4-6 weeks in length. In addition, IIS provides follow-up aftercare services for up to 90 days. IIS believes the best safety net for a child is parent(s) who are caring and capable, rather than the child being placed outside the home. Lastly, IIS offers counseling, education, listening, modeling, problem solving, child management, communication and negotiation skills, use of community resources, housekeeping skills, and a reasonable alternative to out-of-home placement.

To learn more about other services, please feel free to contact us today.
