Prevention & Intervention

At MSPCC, we believe that prevention and early intervention offer the best hope for children at risk. If we can anticipate the needs and stresses of today's families and equip them with the necessary resources and skills to respond to them, then we have provided the truest form of protection. MSPCC's prevention and support programs offer a wide range of services designed to respond to the individual needs of the children and families that we serve.

In addition to outpatient services offered in our six regional offices, we also provide services in families' homes, in schools and other community settings, where families are most comfortable. An overview of our services is below. Or click here to find all services available in your area.
