IHBS began providing Home Based Services with only four employees. Since then, significant growth has occurred allowing services to be delivered to a greater number of children and families throughout Southern Indiana. IHBS currently offers services to children and families involved with DCS and Probation, prevention services through the Community Partners for Child Safety program, services to fathers through the Fatherhood Engagement Initiative, as well as, behavior support services through the Medicaid Waiver programs. Expanding services has allowed IHBS to assist the State of Indiana in providing crucial services to children, families, and persons with developmental disabilities.
