Family Intervention Services
Inspiritus supports and assists children and families by providing services that focus on strengthening families. Family Intervention Services (FIS) is part of Inspiritus’ Continuum of Service model.
A+ PARENTS PROGRAM
The A+ Parents Program focuses on strengthening families by providing a continuum of services from parenting education for all parents of young children to more intensive services for families at risk for intervention. Evidenced-based parenting programs are offered for families raising children with typical age appropriate behaviors and children with more severe behavioral issues, developmental delays, and medical needs. For families at risk of coming to the attention of the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), the A+ Parenting Program focuses on preventing family issues from escalating to the point of requiring Child Protective Services (CPS) intervention and/or out-of-home placements.
We cater our program to meet the needs of families through training.

Volunteers are a very important part of our Family Intervention Services program. Whether expanding awareness of our program, working directly with families, providing in-kind services, or assisting with the transportation needs of our clients, volunteers have a vital role to play. If you are interested in volunteering, please take a look at our volunteer opportunities or contact us here.
The Inspiritus Family Intervention Services program receives funding from the Department of Human Services, Division of Family and Children Services, Georgia State University, and many more which enables us to help families in need. Funding also provided in part by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners under the guidance of the Department of Housing and Community Development CSP Program.
FIS success is measured by the following outcomes:
1) Children are, first and foremost, protected from abuse and neglect and safely maintained in their homes whenever possible.
2) Children have permanency and stability in their living situations.
3) Families have enhanced capacity to provide for their children’s needs.
