IIH services for Children/Adolescents under age 21 are intensive, time-limited interventions provided typically but not solely in the residence of a child who is at risk of being moved into an out-of-home placement or who is being transitioned to home from out-of-home placement due to documented clinical needs of the child (2013).
Home is defined as the family residence and includes a child living with natural parents, relatives, or a legal guardian, or the family residence of the child’s permanent or temporary foster care or pre-adoption placement (2013).

The child and at least one parent or responsible adult with whom the child is living must be willing to participate in In-home services, with the goal of keeping the child with the family. Services must be directed toward the treatment of the eligible child (2013).

These services provide crisis treatment; individual and family counseling; and communication skills (e.g. counseling to assist the child and his parents to understand and practice appropriate problem-solving, anger management, and interpersonal interaction, etc.); case management activities and coordination with other required services; and 24-hour emergency response (2013).
