Arkansas Intensive In-Home Services

Offering Hope to Families in Crisis

Our Arkansas Intensive In-Home Services enable clinicians to directly observe families where family members are most comfortable – at home, in a familiar environment. Families are referred to us by the Arkansas Department of Human Services, with every case beginning with a comprehensive assessment, focusing on:

  • Identifying unique family characteristics, priorities, and concerns.
  • Developing strategies to keep children in their homes, utilizing Saint Francis’ support.
  • Observing and interacting with families in their home to directly address and improve unhealthy behaviors while reinforcing positive, healthy life choices.

Upon referral, families are assigned a dedicated clinician and receive round-the-clock support, including a 24-hour contact number, guaranteed 15-minute response times, and access to local offices for in-person meetings with Saint Francis Ministries staff.
