Preventive services are provided for the purpose of either averting a placement or re-placement or hastening a child’s return home from placement consistent with Section 423 of Social Services Law. Preventive Services offer support to families and youth in the home, community, or schools. School-Based services provide services to students who are having difficulties with academic performance either due to behaviors, attendance, or emotional difficulties. Services are provided through casework counseling, case coordination, parent education, groups, mentoring, and more.
