COMMUNITY BASED YOUTH INTERVENTION
Counseling and case management for runaway, truant, and ungovernable youth
The Intervention Program is designed to help families whose youth exhibit risk factors that make them more susceptible to becoming involved with the juvenile delinquency or dependency systems. The programs utilize evidence-based approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma informed care to help youth and families survive crisis and thrive beyond it.
CINS / FINS
This program provides help to Children in Need of Services and Families in Need of Services. The risk factors include school problems, truancy, family behavior problems, ungovernability, runaway behaviors, homelessness, poor peer relations, drug and alcohol use. The CINS/FINS Program assists youth from ages 6-17 and provides the following services at no cost to youth, parents and guardians: Individual and Family Counseling, Mentoring, and Community Connections.
Domestic Violence Respite
The DV Respite Program serves as an alternative to secure detention for youth, ages 6-17, who are arrested and charged with domestic violence offenses on household members. Youth are eligible for this program whether they are pending disposition or on probation for a domestic violence offense. Our services are intended to help youth and their families avoid future arrests through effective communication, identification of emotions, and developing coping mechanisms.
S.N.A.P. stands for STOP NOW AND PLAN. It is an evidence-based, cognitive behavioral model that is built on three decades of research, innovative program development and stringent evaluation by clinicians and researchers at the Child Development Institute (CDI). SNAP helps troubled children and their parents learn how to effectively manage their emotions and minimize problems. The gender-sensitive SNAP Boys and SNAP Girls program are designed for children ages 6-11 that are engaging in aggressive, anti-social behavior and/or have come into contact with authority figures at school or in the community. S.N.A.P.’s goal is to prevent future anti-social behavior and reduce conflict among family, peers and authority figures.
