We believe the family is the single most important entity that reflects the conditions of the community. Our Youth, Family and Clinical Services department allows us to serve those individuals in the family who appreciate personal development opportunities and require additional supportive services to help balance life stressors (e.g., academics, mental wellness, unhealthy relationships, parent-child communication, etc.) that threaten self-sufficiency or the sustainability of the family unit.
