Child & Adolescent Services
Today's children and teens face many challenges - at home, at school and with friends. Academic underachievement, temper tantrums, social difficulties, sadness, worrying, poor body image, lack of confidence - all these are indicators children show us when they are in need of some extra help.
Child & Adolescent Services provides assistance to children and their families so they can meet these challenges and thrive in their emotional, social and academic development. Our mission is accomplished through counseling, education, advocacy and community involvement designed to nurture the psychosocial needs of children, adolescents and their families.
