Our School and Community Youth Services offer families an array of programs and services that are designed to affirm the ethnic, racial, and language diversity of the region. Families are invited to participate in counseling, tutoring, skills building and psychoeducational groups, parenting classes and more. We offer special outreach to individuals of our local ethnic communities, with programming in several languages in an effort to remove barriers and improve outcomes for at-risk and underserved populations. We focus on prevention and early-intervention services with a goal of safely maintaining children and youth and their families and communities out of the juvenile justice system. Our School and Community Youth Services are certified Youth Service Bureaus.
Our centers are unique and distinctive; we provide programs both in the community and within schools, making a broad impact on the people we assist. Our experienced, compassionate team of family and child therapists, case managers, and youth development specialists provide support and guidance to the children and families in each community they serve. Through our offerings, our team members can assist families and students with services and resources that benefit them in school, at home, and in their communities.
Our program is trauma-informed, helping maintain a calm and safe environment for growth. We meet our youth and families at their level, both at the school and in their communities where they are comfortable. Our services are bilingual so our families can communicate effectively and take advantage of all that we have to offer.
