The Youth Crisis Respite Center serves teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 who are experiencing a need for a short-term “break” from a pending or existing stressor. Referrals can be self or family initiated. Referrals may also come from schools, law enforcement, mental health facilities, hospitals, and local mental health professionals.
The center provides short-term residential crisis services to youth with low risk of harm to self or others. Respite services are provided in a safe, caring, traditional home environment with 24-hour supervision. Activities are individualized to target and alleviate the immediate challenges youth and/or family are experiencing. While at the Center, youth continue their education and are offered social and recreational activities.
