His services included therapeutic visitation with his father, as well as individual therapy.
“Jane” is a teenager and connected with HOPE for Children and Families in 2015. Jane had a history of significant abuse and her parents were suffering from drug addiction issues. She was living with family and made threats to hurt herself and her family. At the time Jane was referred, she was incarcerated for assaulting a family member; her caregivers were scared of her behaviors. HOPE’s goal was to help Jane and her family to get the care she needed for her to live successfully at home. Jane started out in a residential program outside of her home. As she began to progress in treatment and work towards a transition home, HOPE supported her by coordinating and funding various non-traditional services such as wraparound services, play therapy, equine therapy, and therapeutic respite. These services complemented the more traditional services such as therapy and case management that Jane was receiving through her insurance provider.
