Medicaid-Funded In-Home Services

This program provides intensive, time-limited, in-home crisis intervention and treatment for children and adolescents who are at risk of being moved into an out-of-home placement or who are being transitioned to home from out-of-home placement due to documented clinical needs of the child.

Individual and Family Support

In this strengths-based and family-focused program, our home-based counselors serve as advocates for children and their families. They provide assistance, support, and training to attain and sustain community placement, effectively meeting the needs of their children in a safe, positive, and healthy manner.

School Refusal Program

School Refusal is the refusal to attend school, difficulties remaining in class for the entire day, or both. Children who refuse school often have significant struggles with anxiety, mood disorder, or emotional regulation. School refusal is often a symptom of these struggles.

The school refusal program at Family Priority is a two-month intensive treatment process. During this process, the worker will help to identify the reason for refusing school and create a family and individual treatment plan based on the underlying reason a child is refusing school.

“One hundred years from now
It won’t matter
What kind of car I drove
What kind of house I lived in
How much money I had in the bank
Nor what my clothes looked like
BUT
The world may be a little better
Because, I was important
In the life of a child.”
