Youth and Community Services

Family Services promotes wellness and non-violence in our community by providing individuals and families crisis intervention services, counseling, advocacy, and youth-focused services. The Youth and Community Services team provides comprehensive services to reduce juvenile delinquency. Staff assist young people and families who are faced with difficulties at school, home or in the community to improve their chances for success in life. Priority is placed on reducing the likelihood that at-risk youth will continue down a criminal path.

Programs:

  • Seeking Safety Group Counseling: Single gender group counseling for youth who have experienced trauma and struggle with substance use/abuse.
  • Parent Education Class: An eight-week parenting class based on the Common Sense Parenting curriculum.
  • Family Empowerment: In-home social work services for families of at-risk youth that use a variety of interventions to redirect inappropriate youth behavior and strengthen parenting skills.
  • Professional Mentoring: Community-based professional mentoring for youth identified as level 2, level 3 or on post-release supervision by juvenile court.
  • Keeping Up: Academic enhancement, group skill building, and parent support group program for youth ages 11-16 who are suspended or at-risk of suspension.
  • Open Clinic: Available to youth for walk-in consultations on Tuesdays from 1 pm – 3 pm. Clients must be between 7-17 years of age to participate.

Service fees are based on insurance and sliding scale fees. We accept most insurances including Medicaid. For more information on any of these programs, please call our main office at 336-249-0237.
