CommUnity Crisis Services is excited to announce that, in partnership with United Action for Youth, we will be offering youth crisis stabilization services in 2024. This new program will allow a therapeutic place for youth to stabilize for 3 – 10 days or an extended 21-day stay for unhoused, trafficked, or runaway youth. During their stay, they will be able to engage in individual and family counseling, therapeutic recreation with arts, music and animals, and peer support groups. Upon discharge, they will remain connected to the services offered by United Action for Youth and CommUnity Crisis Services as needed. We are looking forward to providing a developmentally appropriate, healing space for youth and their families experiencing a mental health crisis. Our focus will always be on connecting and building relationships with youth to meet them where they are, and support them with unconditional positive regard.
