Youth Villages serves families in Florida through intensive in-home services

Youth Villages expanded into Florida in 2008 after the state received a Title IVE waiver from the federal Department of Health and Human Services. This waiver allows Florida’s child welfare department to utilize its main funding streams more flexibly to serve more children in community/home-based settings as opposed to traditional foster care or other out-of-home placements.

The state identified Youth Villages’ Intercept program as a service option that could be provided through the flexible use of these dollars. We now provide in-home services through our office in Lakeland.
