Our Programs & Services
FP is a home-based, intensive therapeutic service for high-risk families designed to prevent out-of-home placement or prepare a family for reunification. Chins Up’s family preservation services are modeled after the National Family Preservation Network’s definition of Intensive Family Preservation Services (IFPS).
Individual and Family Therapy
Individual and/or Family Therapy may be provided by Master’s level therapists. Cases will be referred to clinicians on a case-by-case basis and each funder source may vary. Funders can include social services/CORE funding, Medicaid, grants, or private pay.
Behavior Coaching provides structured contact and a positive adult role model to youth who could benefit from a healthy professional relationship to build new skills, including social skills and behavior management.
Mentoring provides a positive adult role model to youth who could benefit from a healthy professional relationship to build new skills. Each client receives weekly contact with their mentor and will have the flexibility to meet their mentor in home, school, video, or community settings.
Visitation Services & Behavioral Coaching
Therapeutic Visitation is a service in which an MA-level therapist provides the family with therapeutic interventions during a visit. This can include modeling appropriate behaviors for the parents, stepping in when a child is acting out, and/or showing parents how to do basic skills such as diapering, bathing, or overall engagement of child while visiting.
Visitation facilitators supervise the interactions between parent and child. The Visitation facilitators make sure all interactions are child-centered and appropriate.
Visitation facilitators supervise all interactions between parent/relative and child at the beginning and end of the visit (transition times) and during, at unannounced check-ins (once or twice depending on the length of the visit).
Life Skills/Parenting Skills (LSPS)
LSPS is an intensive home-based model focusing on improving parenting skills while increasing safety and stability for children. These skills are taught with an emphasis on the child’s developmental needs and with a goal of the parent achieving self-sufficiency.
