Even the socially-defined perfect child can be a challenge and cause parents, grandparents, and other caregivers to question their parenting skills. So why then, should parenting a child who has suffered challenges or trauma seem anything other than nearly impossible?

Spero provides intensive, in-home crisis intervention, counseling, and life-skills education for families who have children at imminent risk of placement in the child welfare system and who are involved in the juvenile justice system. They must also meet the criteria for Redeploy. The program uses an integrated approach that offers a variety of evidence-based practices to meet the individualized needs of a family and young person, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Wraparound, and Positive Parenting Program (Triple P). These evidence-based practices have been shown to be effective with the identified population in need.

Referrals are made through Marion and Clinton County probation. Must meet re-deploy eligibility.
