Diversion

The Diversion Program is a community-based program that provides face-to-face services with the youth and family in the home, school and community. The program focuses on families with children aged 0-18 who are at risk of becoming involved with the Chester County Department of Children, Youth, and Families due to parent-child conflict or acting out behaviors. The participants will be either English or Spanish-speaking families.

Community Health Workers uses the Standard Triple P evidence-based Curriculum.

The Diversion Program is approximately a three to four months program and focuses on providing case management, engagement activities, and monitoring services. The Community Health Worker will be expected to see the adolescent and/or family for a minimum of one hour of face-to-face services each week, but additional services will be provided as needed. At least two of the sessions each month must be held in the home with the family. The Community Health Worker will have a maximum caseload of 12-15 families at any one time.

This program serves the following populations:

  • Low-income children and families
  • Families that speak a language other than English
  • Families with a history of child abuse and neglect
  • Families with a history of domestic violence
  • Families with a history of substance use
