Programs & Services

Providing a broad range of services to youth and families across the state of Indiana. 

Diagnostic Services

Psychological and neuropsychological evaluations for children and adolescents, as well as psychological evaluations for adults, whose families are involved with the Department of Child Services and/or Juvenile Probation

Home-Based Services

This service seeks to prevent out-of-home placement as well as provide reunification support using evidence-based treatment such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or Motivational Interviewing. Treatment and services can adapt and include, but are not limited to, therapy, transportation, supervised visits, and case management.

Family Preservation

This service is designed to work with families who have had a substantiated incident of abuse and/or neglect, where the Indiana Department of Child Services believes the child(ren) can remain in the home with their caregiver(s) with the introduction of appropriate services to the family. 

Drug and Alcohol

Addiction programming supports families involved with the Department of Child Services and Juvenile Probation by offering assessments, groups, and individual therapy based on their level of need.

Older Youth Services

An independent living program for older youth preparing them for the path to adulthood that may include college, careers, housing, money management, and health.

Independent Living Preparation Program (ILPP)

The Independent Living Preparation Program (ILPP) is funded by a Lilly Endowment Grant. ILPP Case Managers use Motivational Interviewing and Trauma Informed Care practices with youth and their teams. The main goal is to have a higher level of preparation for each youth for their most successful transition to Older Youth Services (OYS). Youth will be able to maintain the same ILPP Case Manager to the OYS program.
