Family Success Centers

Family Success Centers are multi-faceted community-based programs that offer families and individuals convenient access to information, support, and resources that help develop and maximize their strengths and potential.

Juvenile/Family Crisis Center

The Juvenile/Family Crisis Center is a 24 hour, legally mandated service. This program is designed to assist families who are experiencing serious difficulties in managing the behavior of children aged 10-17, and in situations where the behavior of the children or parent results in a serious threat to the well-being and safety of the youth or other family members. This court-affiliated program aims to intercede in family conflicts and, where possible, to divert such cases from formal court and premature out of home placement pending exhaustion of community resources. Approximately 90% of the cases are diverted from court; with less than 5% of the cases requiring out of home placement. A primary objective of the Crisis Center is to promote and strengthen the integrity of the family unit. Services include short-term crisis stabilization, family assessment, case management, treatment planning, and referrals to appropriate community-based services.
