Our Future

We are pursuing building several new programs in 2020

1) The Child Abuse Treatment (CHAT) Program provides intensive therapeutic counseling services, on an outpatient basis, to children, under 18 years of age, who have been a victim of a crime.

The CHAT Program is designed to meet the needs of under served children including those who are dependents of the court, in the child welfare system, who are non-English speaking, with disabilities, of racial or ethnic minorities, and/or residing in rural or crime-ridden poverty stricken areas.

2) Case management services in support of youth experiencing homelessness.

3) Expanding our CASA program to have trained Advocates ready to serve juvenile justice youth before the end of the year.

Our Values

Equity. Individualized service plans better meet the needs of the people we serve. "One size fits all" may still leave people underserved.

Evolution. We are a locally responsive organization therefore we value engagement with our community. We want to grow together.

Nurture. We believe everyone deserves to be treated with compassion, dignity and empathy. We embrace trauma-informed care.

Integrity. We strive to be transparent as an organization and encourage our community to hold us accountable in discontinuing the harm that has been caused in the past by child welfare organizations.
