Since 2003, this program has provided wide-ranging services for at-risk youth with behavioral and emotional issues. The program supports, enhances, and encourages the emotional development of our children and their caretakers. Goals are determined by the referral source in the Individual Service Plan, and can include issues of social anxiety, school anxiety, defiance, low self-esteem, ADHD, depression, and cutting.
The staff includes Licensed Clinicians and Behavioral Assistants. In 2008, the program added mentoring services. Sessions are conveniently scheduled for the child and/or family, with many meetings held at home or in the community. The approach is strength-based, non-judgmental, non-dogmatic, and culturally appropriate.
Referrals are made through Behavioral Health agencies, including Perform Care, Capitol County Children’s Collaborative, Catholic Charities, and other case management organizations. These services are eligible for Medicaid reimbursement.
