Sometimes, all a troubled youth or at-risk family needs is a strong, one-on-one relationship with a caring adult – one who provides guidance, therapy, and even friendship. Our Outreach services allow for such relationships to take place, as we pair therapists and mentors with those in need.
Our Outreach program incorporates four basic components: Visitation, In-home Therapy, Mentoring, and the Brighter Future Initiative. Each component helps stabilize and educate at-risk families, working always toward an end goal: maintaining self-sufficiency in the community.
Our visitation program provides supportive services to parents, children, and adolescents, and our outreach helps children and families become better prepared to function within the community and as a family.
In-home Therapy provides individual therapeutic services for delinquents, truants, and youth with mental health issues, AODA (Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse) issues, and/or developmental disabilities.
Our Mentoring program serves boys and girls (ages 7-21) with a history of truancy, disorderly conduct, or an unstable family life. The program is designed to help guide youth toward more positive activities and help them attain better decision-making skills.
The Brighter Future Initiative
The Brighter Future Initiative offers intervention services for boys and girls (ages 10-18) – and often their family members as well – who have committed their first minor delinquent offence.
Our Outreach office is located at the Education and Life Skills Development Center in Milwaukee and at our campus in Dousman.
