Voluntary: Parents can apply for Preventive Services on their own; such as wanting their children to receive advocacy services through the Intensive Preventive Program and/or when placing their teenage child into the Akwesasne Group Home.

Court-Mandated Cases are involuntary procedures that require legal petitions such as Person in Need of Supervision (PINS) and Juvenile Delinquency (JD). They may also be ordered as a result of an investigation through Child Protective Services which would work their way through the Family Court System.
