How We Do It:

After a referral is received and enrollment takes place, our Home Base trained professionals provide immediate contact with each family. All visits with case managers and other support services occur within the home. The team focuses on anger management, parent education, family counseling, relapse prevention, violence prevention, conflict resolution, positive youth development, and self-esteem building.
