- Supervised Visits - Visits in a home environment with a focus on everyday family activities.
- Clinical Oversight - consultation and assessment, observation and clinical work around visits, assistance with coordination of supports and help with parenting skill building.
- Family Recovery Coaching - support with the recovery process, information and resource connections and help navigating the child welfare system.
- Transportation - transportation for the children to visits, if needed.
