Youth and Family Coaching:

 

Youth and Family Coaching:

The Coaching Program is designed to provide individualized, short term, goal focused support services to youth and families both in
and out of home. Families are assigned a coach who provides clients with
strategies to improve current level of functioning and decrease negative
behavior as well as one-on-one mentoring, connection with community resources,
and skill development for parents and children.
Service goals are
developed in an effort to reduce the risk for children to be removed to out-of-home placements.
It is our aim to provide flexible services, emotional support, encouragement,
and to increase self-sufficiency throughout our work with youth and families
