The Youth Villages Intercept in-home services program provides treatment to troubled children and families in their own homes at times convenient for the families.

The program serves children of any age (infant to age 18) who have serious emotional and behavioral symptoms or have experienced abuse and/or neglect.

Intercept specializes in diverting youth from out-of-home placements such as residential treatment facilities, foster homes, psychiatric residential treatment centers, hospitals or group homes, and in successfully reuniting children with their families in the community.

Diversion services generally last four to six months, while reunification services generally last six to nine months. Intercept family intervention specialists are skilled at reuniting families even when the child has been out of the home for an extended period.

A successful transition to adulthood includes maintaining stable and suitable housing, remaining free from legal involvement, participating in an educational/vocational program and developing the life skills necessary to become a responsible citizen. Youth Villages’ YVLifeSet program works not only with former foster youth and other vulnerable young people but also with their support systems to help ensure a more successful transition.
