Intensive Child and Family Services

What is Intensive Child and Family Services?

This is an intensive home, school and community-based program for families with children and youth to the age of 18 who are experiencing significant social, emotional, and/or behavioural problems that make it hard for them to manage in their home, school and/or community and other less intensive supports are not enough. Those with acute mental health issues are seen on a priority basis.

The program has a Day Treatment component for those children having difficulty in school settings. The Day Treatment will be available only to those children within the intensive program, and will be individualized based upon client need.

Child and Youth Workers and Social Workers work collaboratively with the family to set goals and develop strategies to achieve them. The program offers families an opportunity to build on their strengths, skills and relationships.

The program offers:

  • Assessment, counseling and support
  • Up to 6 hours of service per week
  • Parenting strategies
  • Support in the home, school and community
  • Flexible hours and 24/7 telephone support
  • Follow-up “booster sessions”
  • Parenting groups and children’s programs
