FAMILY TRAUMA INTERVENTION PROGRAM (FTIP)
We are a team of compassionate clinicians who provide client-centered therapy and support to children and families. We are committed to fostering strong relationships, reducing the risk of maltreatment and promoting healing by sharing our expertise in trauma and family violence.
The Family Trauma Intervention Program is a therapeutic, home-based program that serves children and families impacted by all types of trauma, including: child abuse/neglect, maltreatment, domestic violence, and grief-related issues such as family member fatalities and community violence. Intensive, ongoing individual and/or family therapy is provided to children and caregivers depending on the family’s needs. Additionally, clients with case management needs are linked with appropriate community resources to ensure that their concrete needs are being met. Our team consists of Master’s level clinicians and experienced case managers who partner with families to promote healing. Our services are child-focused, trauma-informed, based in evidence, and flexible in nature to ensure that we are meeting the unique needs of each child and family we serve.
How to Refer
Many of our referrals come directly from Monroe County DHS, however community professionals and community members can refer children and their families to the program by contacting one of our program supervisors:

What is the cost of FTIP?
Thanks to funding from Monroe County Department of Human Services and the NYS Office of Victim Services, there is no cost to families.
How do I coordinate FTIP services?
FTIP therapists and case managers regularly coordinate with community professionals involved in the lives of the families they serve, including DHS staff, school and daycare personnel, medical and other mental health professionals, and others who are involved in caring for the children. With child and caregiver permission and a signed release form, we can provide information and attend meetings in order to provide recommendations and support.
