Diversion & Prevention Programs

Diversion/Prevention Programs provide family intervention and support provides intensive in-home family preservation services and community outreach with the goal of keeping at-risk children “safe at home.”  The program helps the family to identify, and problem solve regarding those issues that lead to abuse and neglect; to learn about, practice, and develop proficiency in strategies to avoid, deal with, or overcome those issues; and to teach and model with the family regarding how to utilize community resources effectively and to their best advantage.  Families at-risk of having their children removed from the home due to abuse/neglect are referred to the program by Child Protection Investigators.
