Interagency Family Preservation Services

In-Home Family Preservation is a time-limited intensive program available within the local departments of social services. It is a voluntary program, specifically identified to promote stability for families in crisis whose children are at risk of out-of-home placement. Family Preservation actively seeks to obtain community resources or directly provide the critical services needed to enable the family to remain together in a safe and stable environment.
