VHBG’s Intensive In-Home program is equipped to serve children with a wide range of emotional, mental, and behavioral disturbances as well as children with histories of abuse, neglect, or trauma. Service hours will vary depending on the child’s level of need. Examples of problem behaviors among youth accepted into the program could include, but are not limited to: verbal or physical aggression, truancy, defiance, mood instability, running away, learning and/or developmental disabilities, promiscuity or sexualized behaviors, and vandalism. The program is open to children of any age without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or religious affiliation. Children with handicapping conditions will be accepted if it is determined that their needs can be reasonably accommodated.
Exclusion criteria for the program include but are not limited to: a diagnosis of a cognitive disorder such as delirium or dementia; a client whose primary issue is sex offending behavior; or, a client whose primary behavior is substance abuse. Additionally, an admission is prohibited if a staff member is not available to meet the client’s specific special needs or the client poses a potential physical threat to staff.
