Intensive Placement Stabilization (IPS)

IPS provides intensive support to high-risk youth in care to stabilize placements and prevent entry into higher levels of care. One Hope United’s IPS services cover more than 32 counties in Southern Illinois. 

IPS focuses on providing stability and psychoeducation on trauma and its effects. This service uses a trauma framework known as Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC) – a flexible, components-based intervention developed for children and adolescents who have experienced complex trauma along with their caregiving systems.
