The Family Preservation Program is a broad, integrated, community-based, in-home program. The goal of the program is to increase safety, permanency, and the well-being of children. IMCES works with courts and the Department of Child and Family Services, ensuring protection of the child while keeping the family unit intact. Once at IMCES, families engage in a process of self-discovery and education, empowering individual family members to identify and resolve problems early and safely. Amongst the services included are mentoring, parenting training, in-home counseling, psychiatric assessment, multi-disciplinary case planning, family-specific referrals, and 24-hour crisis response.
Our goal as a Wraparound provider is to assist families in remaining together and encouraging them to nurture and care for their children within their natural communities. IMCES staff engages with families in a manner that supports and respects cultural values and beliefs. Wraparound staff joins with families and create the Child & Family Team to support families on their journey to health and wellness.
School Based Mental Health
IMCES is commited to reaching the school-aged, ethnically diverse populations in our community within the convenience of their schools. The program is designed to reach children as early as possible and deliver the goals of the EPSDT (Early Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment) program. With this, we are able to reach children in need of prevention and intervention in order to protect them from high risk factors that may detract to their healthy development. Students are referred by the school psychologist, the PSA counselor, or any administrator who has been designated as the referral source at the school. Students are usually referred to the school psychologist or counselors by parents, teachers, or other school staff members.
