Home Based Therapeutic Services (IHB) is a short term service that works to restore positive functioning in families who would benefit from a variety of coordinated services that are individualized to meet each family’s specific needs.      


IHB has discovered that the team approach of a family therapist and a case worker works best as a direct response to the needs of families served by JPPOs, CPSWs and the courts.

Services include:

  • Assist families to identify and achieve treatment goals
  • Stabilize families who are in crisis
  • Build on the family’s strengths and facilitate effective family interaction
  • Connect families with relevant community resources that can further independence and success
  • Provide adolescent supervision or parent support and education  

CFS staff works with the adolescent to assure that he/she is accountable to the court's order and monitors the youth’s behaviors at home, at school and in the community.  This can include curfew checks, and callbacks and education support.  CFS staff builds rapport with youth through positive role modeling, encouragement and mentoring. As well, staff can help families to learn practical parenting skills, effective discipline, care and nurturing, household organization, budgeting, nutrition, health and hygiene.


Crisis Response

Child and Family Services provides on-call coverage 24-hours, 7-days/week.  All clinicians are trained in crisis intervention and response. 



The referral source is kept informed of progress through ongoing contact including monthly reports that address areas of work, progress and concerns as well as plans for future intervention.
