COUNTY-REFERREDCare Coordination Services

We're Here as an Amazing Resource for Children and Families in Need

The safety and well-being of amazing kids and families are at the heart of all we do.
That's why we are here as a resource to provide comprehensive services to meet the needs of children and their entire family. These comprehensive services begin with prevention and diversion, placement services if needed, and can span the continuum to address reunification and stabilization to offer a holistic approach to care.

These amazing resources fall within two services at The Children's Institute: Two specific services (Infant Care Coordination and the Infant Parent Empowerment Program) also provide a solution to the Pennsylvania requirement (Act 54 2018) to develop a Plan of Safe Care for infants and their caregivers. This continuum of care service model has also proven to prevent re-entry into the child welfare system in various counties.  

Services offered throughout this model begin with a less intensive approach and intensity of services increases as more supports are provided to each child and family.
