Washington

We're thrilled to be expanding our services to the Washington County communities. Below are the services we offer.

 

 

Our Clinical Services provide intensive, in-home support based on Structural Family Therapy and Family Systems Theory to assist families who are facing serious emotional and/or behavioral disturbances. Two-person teams, comprised of one Master’s and one Bachelor’s-level clinician, deliver services an average of twice per week. Services are voluntary and require at least one willing parent or guardian to participate in treatment.

 

 

Our Family Support Services focus on strengthening and preserving families. Our staff work together with birth, foster, and adoptive families to ensure children are provided with a safe, secure, and nurturing environment. Our priority is to prevent the removal of children from their birth families. If that becomes necessary for the safety and well-being of a child, we provide a welcoming foster home with extensive supports, and we strive to strengthen the birth family in an effort to reunite them with their child. When that is not possible, we offer full adoption services so that children may find a loving, permanent home.

 

Foster Care & Adoption Services:

Our resource (foster) families are vital partners in providing care, support, and a safe, nurturing environment for the children placed with them. Our foster care program certifies and trains resource families and supports families as they care for the children. Our goal is to assist in reunifying these children with their family of origin whenever possible. When that is not possible, we help find children a permanent home.

 

We are experienced in placing youth who need specialized foster care due to medical conditions, developmental disabilities, or behavioral challenges. In addition, we are trained to address the needs of youth in the LGBTQ+ community.

 

We are an affiliate agency of the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN), which serves children in the custody of county children and youth agencies. Our SWAN program provides services, free of charge, to families who have provided permanency through adoption, formal kinship, or legal guardianship. We assist the family to identify strengths, establish goals, and locate community resources for ongoing support.
