Intensive In-Home Services are an array of services provided to a child whose mental health, behavioral concerns, or functioning has severely impacted the family environment to a degree that typical family interactions are affected, and the child is at risk of being removed from the home.


Intensive In-Home Services (IIH) are designed to address the needs of the individual child or adolescent and family, with the goal of preventing out-of-home placements or hospitalizations, improving functioning in the home and community, and supporting successful transitions to adulthood.

Intensive In-Home Services include but are not limited to: individual and family therapy, crisis intervention, parent training, medication management, and skill building. Intensive In-Home Services are provided in the child’s home and community settings in order to support families while remaining together. Treatment is directed at reinforcing positive family interactions and improving functioning within the home.

IIH helps children and their families

Our Intensive In-Home Services also coordinate care with psychiatric providers to ensure that the child or adolescent receives comprehensive mental health services. Intensive In-Home Services are an evidence-based practice supported by over 20 years of research. Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Intensive In-Home Services in reducing out-of-home placements, improving functioning, and supporting successful transitions to adulthood.

IIH interventions are delivered through weekly individual and family sessions, as well as weekly contacts with collateral service providers such as schools, juvenile justice agencies, and child welfare agencies.

Intensive In-Home Services are a vital resource for children and adolescents and their families.
