COMMUNITY BASED PROGRAM
Providence House is now contracting with DCS to provide eight hours a week of in-home services for DCS-involved families in the community. Similar to FPP, this program addresses therapy and parenting needs for families as well as case management. This program services families in Floyd, Clark and Harrison Counties, specifically.
Each family is assigned a case manager to help with government assistance, employment, housing, budgeting and other self-sufficiency-related needs. Case managers provide up to four hours of assistance to the family per week.
Providence House provides individual and family therapy to all residents. Group therapy is also provided and includes a parenting group, Patchwork Group, which helps parents gain insight into how their family of origin impacts their relationships with their children and Dual Diagnosis Group for residents in recovery.The Providence House therapy model emphasizes trauma and attachment recovery.
Providence House is an outpatient mental health clinic provider for Medicaid; and has an HSPP licensed psychologist on staff. Campus therapists have master's degrees and are in Doctoral training at Spalding University.
Once families living in Patchwork House have demonstrated readiness, they are eligible to move into one of six campus apartments, which are all furnished with three bedrooms. Readiness is demonstrated by completion of the parenting curriculum (STEP), attendance to all programming and parents' ability to manage their children's behaviors effectively.
Patchwork House provides an intensive, closely supervised living experience for up to four families.
Families have designated sleeping and bathroom space in "dorm-like" houses, with up to two families per house. This program readies families for living in a family apartment and puts family structure in place prior to that move.
Patchwork House is staffed five days a week, allowing for close monitoring of families. Families remain in Patchwork House for at least 30 days.
PROVIDENCE HOUSE IS A FAMILY PRESERVATION PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES OUTPATIENT MENTAL HEALTH FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY, ALONG WITH CASE MANAGEMENT TO HELP FAMILIES BECOME SELF-SUFFICIENT.
