Best Practices

HOPE Intensive In-home Services provide an assessment as requested within 48 hours of referral at no charge. Intensity and duration of services are determined by the assessment team and referring agency.

Discharge Planning begins with the onset of services. A service plan is developed within 30 days of the initial visit with the input of staff, family and referent. Monthly, quarterly and discharge reports are also provided to the referent.

HOPE Intensive In-Home Services seek to encourage self-sufficiency of the family, reduce the rate of out-of home placements, and assist in reunification of families. Intensive In-Home Services are designed to be brief with a focus on identifying and addressing main stressors within the youth and family system.

With the incorporation of the strengths based perspective, HOPE Intensive In-home Services use the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Model as a method that best supports interventions that are congruent with the Intensive In-Home design.
