Intervention Services are made available to families once they enter the child-protective system due to abuse or neglect. These services are put in place to meet the needs of high-risk families and to reduce the likelihood that the abuse or neglect will happen again.
Intervention Services are provided by Neighbor to Family, wo offers child protective investigators a safe alternative to removing a child from home by delivering safety management support services to the family. The program seeks to meet the needs of the highest-risk families without further traumatizing children by removing them from home. Click here for more information about Neighbor to Family.
Behavior Basics and Boys Town South Florida both offer reunification support services to ensure timely reunification in cases where children have been removed from home.
Additionally, we work closely with Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network and their contracted providers to access services for the parents of children under our supervision who need substance abuse and mental health services. When special assessments and services are not available through that network, our case managers can turn to an array of local licensed providers through an authorization process.
