Diversion & Prevention Programs. 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 the 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.
