Keeping Children Safe and Families Together
The Center for Youth and Family Solutions is one of the largest regional providers of Intact Family Services in Illinois with programs in Rock Island, Galesburg, Macomb, LaSalle, Bloomington, Lincoln, Champaign and Danville.
Intact Family Services is a relatively intense, short-term, in-home, community-based, intervention program (6-9 months) that works with families who have been identified by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as at risk for foster care placement. The program is designed to help families identify strengths, set goals and modify behaviors that put their children at risk, with the goal of safely maintaining the children in the home.
- In FY14, by engaging in our services, 81.6% of the families we served avoided the foster care system.
