Home Based Services

Family Ark’s Home-Based Services program helps to preserve, support, and stabilize families in crisis, while helping to create healthy, nurturing relationships.  The primary goal of Home-Based Services is to reunite the child with his/her parent when removal has occurred.  We work diligently to help remove barriers to success, such as transportation by providing in-home or community-based support.  Our team provides individualized case management, supervised visits, therapeutic supervised visits, and therapeutic services to each family member in the home setting. 

Family Preservation Services

Family Ark’s Family Preservation Services works with DCS-involved families to preserve and enhance child safety so that they can remain at home and prevent entry into the foster care system.  These are families who have had a substantiated incident of abuse and/or neglect, where DCS believes the child(ren) can remain in the home with their caregiver(s) with the implementation of appropriate services. Through this program, Family Ark provides a continuum of individualized evidence-based services to keep families together and prevent out-of-home placements through the lens of child safety
