Missouri In-home Services Standards of Practice

"Intensive In-home Services (IIS) are short-term, intensive, home-based, crisis intervention services that offer families in crisis the alternative to remain safely together, averting the unnecessary out-of-home placement of children. IIS is based upon the belief that families can, through intervention; learn to nurture their children, improve their functioning, gain support within their communities, enabling them to remain safely together. Families that have a child or children at imminent risk of removal from the home due to neglect, abuse, family violence, mental illness, emotional disturbance, juvenile status offense, or juvenile delinquency may be candidates for IIS . . ."
