What are Intensive In-home Services?

Intensive in-home services consist of home-based and family-centered counseling for children/adolescents who are at risk of out-of-home placement due to their behaviors.

Services are intense and are provided from 3 to 10 hours per week to the child and family in their homes, schools, and sometimes at Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board (MPNNCSB) outpatient clinics or agencies in the community where the child and family are involved.

The child's residence, as the setting for the services, is more likely to be successful than a clinical setting.
