Healthy Homes provides services to families who are at risk of intervention by Child Protective Services. Education plays a great role in this program, informing the family of corrective actions that may be taken to ensure success. Cleaning supplies and assistance with laundry expenses are sometimes provided. A case manager meets with the family and develops a six-month plan of action, including frequent home visits, and referrals to other human service agencies. This plan includes steps that help empower the family to improve the conditions in which they live, thereby moving the family toward self-sufficiency.

A referral is required from the Department of Social Services, Children's Protective Services, Public Health or Mental Health. After the referral is received, the case manager initiates a meeting to verify TANF eligibility, and completes agency intake and client characteristic form. Future meetings are set and goals are developed at this time.
