Children's Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) —
Professional Home-Based Counseling

Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) help restore your child’s level of functioning to what it was before he or she began struggling with a mental health condition.

This program includes family-centered, home-based therapy for children with emotional or behavioral disturbances, and is certified by the Minnesota Department of Human Services Children's Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS) program. Our professionals provide diagnostic assessments, individual and family therapy, and teach your child new skills to improve his or her ability to function independently.

Program components combine skill-building services and individual and family counseling to provide interventions in the comfort and privacy your home. This allows the therapists and skills workers to provide interventions with a hands-on approach that is often difficult to replicate in an office setting.

Kindred Family Focus therapists and skills workers also help with many of your concerns, ranging from improving communication and relationship skills to managing depression, anxiety, and trauma. Home-based services are utilized by many of the youth and families in Kindred Family Focus foster care and adoption programs.
