Intensive In-home (IIH) is a community-based mental health service for children.

The Easter Seals UCP Volunteer Families for Children program provides short term respite care through a network of licensed families.  This respite service ranges from 1-30 days and is utilized to support families involved in challenges or needing short support to maintain the family system.
 
Providing learning, safe and loving family systems is the goal of Easter Seals UCP's therapeutic & family foster care program.  Families are trained and supported to provide nurturing family environments to children and adolescents needing out-of-home placement.  The program focuses on and supports the strengths and abilities of children and their families.  The placement of children in therapeutic foster care requires therapeutic support from the foster parents and the Easter Seals UCP team to ensure the success of the child.  Professionally trained therapeutic foster parents and respite providers work intensively with the child on independent living skills, conflict resolution, healthy self-images and appropriate interpersonal relationships.  Children needing therapeutic foster care come from a variety of circumstances and experiences in their lives, but have a common need for temporary care outside their permanent residence.  Shared parenting and family reunification skills are developed for a successful return to family systems when possible.  Additionally, Easter Seals UCP can support adoption of children who have been placed for care in our licensed homes when reunification with their birth families is no longer an option.
 
Intensive In-home (IIH) is a community-based mental health service for children. IIH provides a family-based approach to therapy, parent education, case management and crisis resolution for children at risk for out-of-home placement.  Intensive In-home services are designed to restore the family to a successful level of functioning through their journey of teamwork in treatment.
 
Respite care is a temporary break that can be provided to individuals throughout the lifespan. Many individuals with disabilities receive respite care so that families can take a break from daily care-giving activities.  Respite care can be an option for families engaged in challenging situations and requiring short term support for successful outcomes. Easter Seals UCP provides a wide array of respite programs that deliver services in the individual's home or in the community.  The available respite care is based on the needs of the individual and family.
 
Transitions programs are designed to help adolescents with disabilities, ages 15-21, move into adulthood and develop skills for future success. The program focuses on supporting individuals with emotional and behavioral challenges with skill developments.
