In-Home Counseling

In-home counseling and support for at-risk youth and their families.

  • Vocational Education

    WORK4IT is a four- to six-week program that helps at-risk teens and their families learn independent living skills, get on track at school and work toward career goals. We serve boys and girls, ages 14 to 17, who are referred by juvenile court counselors, teaching job skills and placing youth with paid work assignments at partner businesses.

  • Alternatives to Commitment

    As an alternative to sending children and teens to a Youth Development Center, this program provides up to four months of in-home counseling to boys and girls, ages 10 to 17, and their parents on the referral of a juvenile court counselor. It serves repeat offenders with charges such as armed robbery, breaking and entering, assault, destroying school property and substance abuse. The goals are to reduce family conflict and help teens return to the community, go to school or work, and stay out of trouble.

  • Transition | Re-entry

    This program provides up to six months of in-home counseling for boys and girls, ages 10 to 18, who are referred by juvenile court counselors. These are teens who are returning to their home and school after a period of confinement at a Youth Development Center or group home. Planning for reintegration begins before their return and includes education / vocational programs and parenting classes for family members.

  • Family Preservation

    This is a cost-effective, short-term program that helps at-risk youth and their families end unproductive patterns of interaction and build the skills they need to prevent an out-of-home placement. We serve the families of boys and girls, ages 6 to 17, who are referred by court counselors. We also help connect the family with community resources that can assist in areas of need.
