What We Do

Milwaukee Family Intervention Services (MFIS)

Milwaukee Family Intervention Services (MFIS) is a case management program serving Milwaukee County residents in need of intervention services for their family. MFIS is specifically for caregivers and youth  experiencing mental health issues, behavioral concerns, truancy, educational concerns and CHIPS/JIPS petitions.

Services are intended for parents, legal guardians or other adults providing primary care for youth. You must have one or more children ages 10-17 to participate.

Families who are enrolled will participate in Parenting with Love and Limits (PLL) intervention services. This includes family and group sessions with a Therapeutic Intervention Specialist and Family Support Specialist.

All MFIS services are provided free of charge to the family.
