Crisis Intervention

Every family deals with challenges, the Crisis Intervention Program is dedicated to helping families work through these challenges armed with education and support.

Crisis Intervention is a 30-90 day program focusing on a family’s strengths to help them overcome the challenges or crisis they are faced with.

CIP includes home visits focused on identifying and resolving family crisis and problem-solving through family meetings, intensive support, and follow-up services.

Who is eligible?

Families who live in Marshall and Hardin Counties, are expecting or have children 17 years old or younger, and are experiencing a family crisis.

Interested families should be willing to participate in home visits.

CIP is adapted to each family’s specific needs, allowing them to have control of their own goals and progress.

Additional eligibility will be determined on a case by case basis. Services are free and confidential.
