Intensive Family Treatment Services

Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) provides services focused on dealing with family issues that affect both children and parents. These services include:

  • Intact Family Services provides intensive case management and follow-up services to at-risk families who have been reported to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for some type of neglect and/or abuse of the children. Available at several locations around the state.
  • System of Care (SOC) provides placement stabilization of DCFS wards and their foster parents to prevent children and youth from moving from foster home to foster home, as well as to a more restrictive setting. Services include crisis intervention, in-home counseling, and family support and consultation. Available for residents of Lee, Ogle, Carroll, Whiteside, Jo Daviess, Stephenson and DeKalb Counties.
  • Sexual Abuse Treatment for juvenile victims and their families is available at LSSI’s West Peoria site to aid in the healing surrounding the trauma of sexual abuse. In addition, this site also offers sexual abuse treatment for juvenile and adult offenders to prevent any future abuse. These services are available for residents of Peoria County only.
  • Extended Family Support for families who are caring for related children who are referred by DCFS. These families do not have child abuse or neglect issues, but have service needs such as legal services and/or counseling.

LSSI is an Illinois Licensed Child Welfare Agency - License #013005.
