Intensive Services Program
The Intensive Services Program (ISP) is a therapeutic treatment program for parents who have had their children removed from their care as a result of abuse, neglect, sexual abuse or abandonment. The program provides individual and couples counseling, therapeutic parenting group, and supervised visitation. The purpose of the Intensive Services Program is to make the earliest, most appropriate permanent plans for children in placement, avoiding the harmful effects of unplanned long-term foster-care. The primary goal of the program is to use counseling and group work as a way to educate and rehabilitate abusive or neglectful families so that family reunification can take place.
To participate in this program, parents must be referred to our agency by the New Jersey Department of Children and Families’ Division of Child Protection and Permanency.
