- Homestead Services - The goal of Homestead Services is to stabilize and help families in need of intensive therapeutic intervention. Homestead Services provide short-term, intensive, crisis-oriented, in-home counseling services designed to stabilize the family and insure a safe and healthy environment for the children. This program attempts to meet the immediate /crisis-oriented needs of families while also beginning to address the root causes of family dysfunction with therapeutic intervention strategies. The Homestead program provides comprehensive assessment, family support, counseling, and crisis intervention to manage the risk factors contributing to child abuse and neglect. Homestead Services can be used for children at imminent risk of foster placement and reunification when a child is being returned to his/her family.
- Parenting/Parent Aide - The goal of the Parent Aide Program is to stabilize and help families in need of intervention by providing in-home and group parenting education. The Parent Aide Program allows paraprofessional staff to provide parenting education, training and support to families through group classes and in-home visitation. Parent Aides collaborate with staff to provide services that ensure the safety and protection of children by improving parenting competency. The objectives of this program are to strengthen the parent-child bond, reduce social isolation, build trust, help parents identify their children's needs and ways to respond to those needs, and implement appropriate discipline. Other services may include emergency respite care, food and nutrition education (i.e. meal planning, advice on grocery shopping, meal preparation, safe food handling and sanitation), information on homemaking and budgeting topics, and assistance in accessing community resources.
- Early Intervention Services - The goal of Early Intervention/Preventive Services is to provide voluntary family support services and information about community services that may prevent problematic family issues from escalating to the point of required CPS intervention.
