Denver Children's Home recognizes the need for behavioral health services to be implemented in the community. Community-Based Services include Intensive In-Home Therapy and Outreach Services.
Intensive In-Home Therapy
Families participating in the Intensive In-Home Therapy Program receive a wide array of services within their own home. Families that are served in this program have often struggled to succeed in other therapeutic settings. We employ a variety of evidenced-based and trauma-informed interventions ranging from experiential therapies (sand tray, play therapy, art therapy, and animal-assisted therapy) to more traditional talk therapy techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Treatment is tailored to meet the needs of each family. Our clinicians are all Master’s level and highly trained in working with diverse and complex cases. In addition to therapeutic interventions, our Intensive In-Home team can also provide individualized behavior coaching and parent education. Families in this program also receive comprehensive needs assessments conducted in their homes by outreach staff to address challenges with basic needs. These services enable families to better focus on treatment.

Holiday Gift Giveaway
Each holiday season, hundreds of low income families make appointments to “shop” for holiday gifts for their children at the Family Resource Center. For many families, these are the only gifts they’ll receive this holiday season. Please ensure that we have enough gifts to meet a growing demand. We gratefully request new, unwrapped gifts that are appropriate for babies through teenagers. Holiday Gift Drive Wish List
