Ideally, families are not in need of our services. Oftentimes, people just need to be pointed in the right direction to get help. We can provide contact information to a number of resources that do not require a Children and Youth Services (CYS) investigation or an open CYS case.
In the event that a family does need CYS services, we try to work voluntarily with a family, and can offer:
- In-home crisis/family preservation services
- Crisis/Rapid Response Family Meetings
- Referrals for Family Group Decision Making
- Parenting education services
There are times we need to seek court intervention before providing services, which may include out of home placement.
