Comprehensive Home-Based Services (CHBS)
Family & Children’s Services Comprehensive Home-Based Parent Support and Training Program (CHBS) is offered for parents who are at-risk of child abuse/neglect. Eligibility for participation is limited to families that have been directly referred by the Department of Human Services child welfare for child maltreatment. This skill-building program teaches home safety, children’s healthcare, effective parenting, increased parent-child relationships and effective budgeting and household management while building protective factors against future abuse.
Our specialists are available 24/7 to help you prevent situations that could cause your children to be placed in foster or adoptive homes. For parents and children being reunified, we work to build a safe, supportive environment. Family & Children’s Services utilizes the Safe Care Model, which seeks to educate parents about their children’s health needs, improve home safety and enhance parent-child interaction.
