INTENSIVE IN-HOME SERVICES
Intensive In-Home Services is a Virginia Medicaid funded program which provides mental and behavioral health services to children who are at risk of out of home placement.
This program seeks to promote individual and family stabilization within the home of the client and reduce behaviors which place them at risk of removal from the home.
