Based on a mental health assessment of the child, the goals and approach encompass the entire family. Lsi also provides urgent Services, such as crisis intervention or family team meetings. With the ultimate goal of avoiding an out-of-home child placement, these Services encompass the entire family with shared goals and successes. in addition to many community-based programs that fill the gaps between available local resources and identified needs, lsi is a partner on statewide contracts for recruiting, training, and supporting Iowa's foster/adoptive families and family safety, risk and permanency (frsp) Services.

"Services for people with disabilities" helps individuals gain and maintain independence and assists caregivers and family members by providing crucial respite care, which helps to prevent out-of-home placement of individuals with disabilities. Consumers can take advantage of hourly or 24-hour Services to help them learn life skills and achieve individual goals.
