YOUTH EMPOWERMENT SERVICES
Services & Goals
Youth Empowerment Services are community-based services to children and adolescents with severe emotional disturbances. Children at risk for out of home placement are served by a team of mental health professionals who create an individual treatment plan and utilize a wrap around treatment approach to encourage and sustain family placement. By utilizing the wrap around process and accessing area resources, this service model allows CFGC to maintain our program goals to:
Reduce out-of-home placements and decrease inpatient hospitalizations.
Provide a more complete continuum of community-based services and supports.
Ensure families have access to parent partners & support services.
Prevent entry into the foster care system or relinquishment of parental custody.
