Home-Based Services

The goal of our Home-Based Services Program is to help families stay together and thrive. Often, good families have developmental challenges that an objective professional can help guide the family to wellness. This may include situations in which the child is at imminent risk of leaving or being removed from the home or is currently out of the home and needs help to return.

CHOICES Home-Based Services Program provides therapeutic services in the homes of the children and their families.
