Hope and Healing

VISION:

WE WANT TO BUILD PERSONAL AND FAMILY STRENGTHS THROUGH A SUPPORTIVE INTERVENTION PROCESS WITH HIGH-RISK YOUTH, TO EMPOWER THEM TO CHOOSE HEALTH, POSITIVE ACTIVITIES AND PEERS, AND STEPS TOWARD REWARDING FUTURES.

This intervention process is based on building a relationship of trust between the youth and our counselor. It includes group, individual and family counseling, referrals and connections to other needed resources, parenting skills education, motivational efforts regarding education – regular attendance, participation in classes, study skills, plans for the future.

It also includes presentations and discussions on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, and the impact of this behavior on health, mental and physical abilities and functioning, legal problems and family/social relationships.
