Background info: 

Did you know that states now have the option to use federal funds for prevention activities (including mental health services, substance disorder treatment and in-home parent services)? These services can be provided to “children at imminent risk of placement into foster care”,  pregnant or parenting youth in foster care, parents of children at imminent risk (including adoptive) or their kinship/relative caregiver. Services can be provided for up to 12 months and may be extended. Want to learn more? Contact!
