About this Program

Youth Support Program provides culturally sensitive case-management to Department of Children and Families (DCF) involved adolescents and their families that require intensive support services.

Program components include: academic support, life skills training, parent/adolescent mediation, community service connection, and emergency support.

The goal of this program is to promote the well-being of adolescents/pre-adolescents between the ages of 10 through 17 and their families by providing appropriate culturally and linguistic supportive services, building on the existing strengths of the family, and empowering families to make their own decisions in an effort to reduce or eliminate child abuse and neglect. Visits to the youth are weekly.
