In-Home Services

Youth for Tomorrow (YFT) provides two levels of In-Home Services, Intensive In-Home Services and Supportive In-Home Services.  They are both based on the philosophy that children and adolescents are best cared for within their home and community whenever it is possible.  Services are generally time-limited, family focused and delivered in the home.  In-Home Specialists help you and your family address behavioral and emotional issues.  

Services include:

  • Comprehensive and timely assessment
  • Individualized, strengths-bases treatment plans
  • Therapeutic services delivered in the home and community
  • Family and individual interventions
  • Parental coaching and skill development
  • Safety and coping skills development
  • Psychoeducation
  • Case coordination
  • 24 hour crisis support and response

Services begin with a comprehensive evaluation completed by a Licensed Mental Health Professional.  An Individualized Service Plan is developed with the family and is used to guide services.  The plan is reviewed regularly to evaluate progress and updated as needed.  All services are delivered by Licensed Mental Health Professionals or Qualified Mental Health Professionals under the supervision of Licensed Mental Health Professionals.

What is the purpose of In-Home Services?

The purpose of home-based services is to provide comprehensive services to at-risk children, adolescents and families in order to stabilize the family and maintain the home environment, establish and work on treatment goals and facilitate the use of community resources by the family.  

We can help families with: 

  • Aggressive and/or Acting Out Behaviors
  • Impulse Control
  • Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression
  • Symptoms of Trauma
  • School Issues
  • Family Relationships and Communication
  • Behavior Management
  •  Anger Management and Conflict Resolution
  • Life Skills (communication, money management, time management, and social skills) 

What population does Intensive In-Home serve?

Intensive In-Home Services supports children and adolescents and their families, when behavioral and mental health issues may result in removal form the home environment without timely intervention.  Additionally, children and adolescents who are transitioning home from an out-of-home placement such as foster care, detention, or residential programs may be appropriate for services.  This service may be funded by Virginia Medicaid. 

What population does Supportive In-Home serve? 

Supportive In-Home Services are provided to youth and their families in the home and community to support the family through crisis or manage the behavioral or mental health needs of a youth.
