In-Home Supportive Services

As the result of an investigation, the agency may learn that there are ongoing concerns in a family that could cause harm to a child. The family is asked to agree to a voluntary In-Home Supportive Service case. This way, a child can remain in the home while the concerns are being addressed.

A caseworker develops a case plan with the family. This plan focuses on the identified risk as well as the strengths of the family.

The caseworker helps the family obtain services through the agency or through referrals to other community resources.

We continue to assess risk to the child and to monitor the parent's progress with the case plan.
