In Home Services

When a family is referred to DHS, sometimes all they need is support through a tough time or guidance on how to handle a particular situation. When this is the case and children can safely remain in their own home, the Wordsworth CUA provides “In Home Services.” These include regular home visits to check on the parent(s) and children, and may also include parenting classes, connecting the adults in the home to supports in their community, individual or family therapy, or other services that may be appropriate. As often as possible, the goal is to keep children in their home without the need for out of home placement.
