Hope and healing may be found right in your community
If you are in need of counseling, case management or life skills education, Family Service has options to meet your needs. See below for more information on services based in the community.
Do you feel there are things you can’t handle alone? We all do. Counseling can help anyone of any age to manage daily life or handle emotional issues.
Community Counseling and Day Treatment
Your child deserves support on his own turf. Thanks to partnerships with local after-school programs, he can get just that. Therapeutic Day Treatment is a Medicaid-funded program. Community Counseling is group or individual sessions. Both are offered in after-school programs.
The support of an in-home counselor for your child will help your family set goals so you can all get along better, and be more aware of each others’ needs. Counseling may deal with communication, daily routines, anger management, self-esteem or other issues. Intensive-In Home is a Medicaid funded program.
If you, or someone you know, are physically immobile, counselors may be able to make home visits. Partnerships with local assisted living and care facilities allow older adults and incapacitated persons to access counseling without having to leave their place of residence.
Do you need support to manage day to day life? A case manager can help figure out what may be going wrong, get you connected to services, and help you take care of your family.
You will be able to set goals for yourself and your family and create a more peaceful home. You may work on skills to deal with your situation, anger management, or self-esteem.
The best chance for success comes when youth develop relationships with positive adults and get involved in the community. Youth Development Specialists work in school, after school and community settings to help youth identify strengths and build healthy decision-making skills.
Positive Action and Teen Outreach Program®
Parenting groups add extra support, and teach skills you and other adults can use at home to connect with your children. Caregivers who participate experience better understanding of how their child feels, less stress, fewer acting out behaviors from their child, and overall healthier family relationships.
