Community Based Services

    Providing Healing and Hope Wherever You Need it Most

    When you think about receiving services, where do you see yourself? At the park? In a library? On a walk? How about in your own home? These places offer comfort to so many, and our team can meet you there. That’s right, in a place where you are most comfortable. Our Community Based programs provide services in Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, and Ulster counties. We strive to provide the highest level of care – care that is centered around your child and accessible to your family. 

    Allowing these services to take place where youth are most comfortable creates the strong rapport that is necessary to facilitate hope and change.

    Our Children and Family Treatment Support Services include individual, family and group counseling. This program has components of targeted interventions to achieve optimal health and well being for youth and their families along with skill based components such as prevocational and daily living skills. The youth voice is so vital in the work we do and our team wants to be sure the youth and family feel empowered.

    Home and Community Based Services provides four specific services to youth including respite, provocation skills, and caregiver/family support and advocacy. Please note to be eligible for HCBS the youth must first be enrolled in Health Home Care Management.

    Wendy’s Wonderful Kids is a program funded by a grant from the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a national non-profit public charity that brings children waiting in foster care one-step closer to being adopted into safe, loving and permanent homes. Our WWK program provides child-focused adoption recruiters that work in Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties in New York.

    Our Mandated Preventive Services is provided in conjunction with the Dutchess County Department of Children and Family Services. Preventive is a program consisting of 30 families who are at risk and need support to stay intact. Our team consists of three Case Managers and a Clinician that can assess for risk and safety while providing comprehensive support services. The goal of this program is to keep at risk families intact and empower them to be successful independently in their community.
