Supportive Housing Program

Emergency Shelter and Supportive Housing – Youth Ages 10-19

The youth we serve live with a variety of challenges and obstacles. We address pressing and immediate needs for intervention and provide a safe and secure environment.

The Emergency Shelter and Supportive Housing Program is a 30-day temporary shelter program providing intensive mental health services plus aftercare for youth ages 10 to 19 with a goal of reducing their behavioral and emotional symptoms, and enhancing decision-making skills and relationships. It helps youth and families resolve issues so that the youth can return home and be successful. For youth in challenging home situations, an extended stay may be provided. Clients receive a complete initial assessment by a licensed, masters-level clinician, who works with them to identify treatment goals and intervention plans. While in the program, the client participates in psychotherapy and psychoeducation groups, and art therapy. Participants receive non-therapeutic counseling from staff, including mentoring and solution-focused interventions for problematic behaviors in shelter units.

In most cases, the client receives residential services for about 30 days and when he or she returns home, their assigned therapist continues to provide counseling as part of our in-home aftercare services. The goal of aftercare is continuing to work to resolve emotional, behavioral and relationship issues that create barriers to client success at home and at school. Thus, the average length of participation is four to six months.

Our highly skilled licensed program staff provide therapeutic support including TELEHEALTH counseling. Telehealth counseling does NOT require Internet access, just a phone.
