Home-Based Services

YOU, Inc.

YOU, Inc. has been providing a myriad of unique home-based services to families and children since 1993. These services are tailored to each family’s needs, increasing or reducing the intensity of treatment as needed. Our home-based program is rooted in its strength-based, family-focused, consumer-centered, systemic approach to service delivery.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts’s Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative (CBHI) brings structure and coordination to the delivery of behavioral health services to children across the state. The CBHI mission ensures that children with MassHealth who have significant behavioral, emotional and mental health needs and their families get the services they need for success in home, school, community, and throughout life.

Population Served

Funded through private insurance or MassHealth, our Home-Based services are offered to:

  • Youth ages 3-21 and their families
  • Youth struggling with mental health issues that significantly impact their functioning in at least one life domain.
  • Youth are at risk for hospitalization, or who have recently been hospitalized for mental health concerns.

Overview of Services

In-Home Therapy, Family Stabilization and Support, and Positive Parenting are offered in a client’s home or natural environment and include the family system as an integral part of treatment. The home-based service philosophy is built on a strengths-based, family-focused system of care. Some of those systems interfacing with the families we are engaged with include the schools, court systems, Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA), Housing Departments, Food Pantries, Parent Aid Programs, Mental Health clinics, substance abuse services, medical providers, Youth Mobile Crisis Intervention, Emergency Mental Health (EMH) Departments, after-school programs, daycare providers, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and Department of Mental Health (DMH).
 
The home-based treatment model provides a rich array of services for at-risk families or individual consumers who are multi-stressed and often in crisis. The program offers home-based, intensive short term and long term services that assist multi-stressed families and adult consumers to expand their support network, strengthen their coping strategies, increase their capacity for self-efficacy and help manage crises. The program has the capability and expertise to handle referrals dealing with trauma-related symptoms/crises, domestic violence, substance abuse, severe mental illness, developmental & learning disabilities, and parent-child conflicts.
