Tanager Place

Helping Children & Families Since 1879

Some youth behaviors can be symptoms of deeper problems.

Each day over 600 families are helped through our outpatient Community Based Services. These services address the safety and well-being of children and are provided in the family’s home. Working with the family, services are developed on an individual basis. The focus of these programs is to establish permanency for the children and allow them to remain safely in the home.

Programs Include:

Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) – skill building interventions that address behaviors and help children and their families deal with mental health diagnoses. BHIS can be provided individually or in a family format, in the child’s home or in another identified setting such as daycare or school. BHIS is offered to children ages 4-20 years who have Medicaid.

Family Safety, Risk and Permanency – these services provide a wide variety of interventions and support to children and their families referred by the Department of Human Services. The goal of this program is to help a child establish permanency either safely in their home or in an alternative placement.

Pediatric Integrated Health

Tanager Place offers additional care through our Pediatric Integrated Health (PIH) services for families with Medicaid eligible children who have a psychiatric diagnosis. To learn more about this free service, visit our page on PIH.
