The program’s goal is to improve school attendance and success, increase social, emotional and behavioral skills, decrease violent behaviors, reduce out of home placements, decrease substance abuse, and increase family satisfaction and quality of life. We have been in existence since 1997.

We have been under contract with Hennepin County and received provider status with the State of Minnesota as a Children’s Rehabilitative Mental Health Services Provider beginning in October of 2002. Our interventions are most often systems focused including the individual, family, extended family and their community (i.e. school, hospital, treatment centers, corrections, family and children’s services, court systems etc.). In some cases we treat primarily the identified client where it would be counterproductive to treat their system. These cases are the exception. Services provided range from skills work to therapy to diagnostic assessments to psychological testing. Every family is treated on an individual basis. Treatment goals and plans are tailored to fit the family’s specific needs. Family input is crucial to this process. We gather information regarding the family’s strengths and needs in relationship to their environment, culture, mental health, spirituality and community. We use their strengths as levers for change. We make periodic calls to the family during services to assess how the service is going and if they feel they are getting their needs met. At the end of services, in a closure meeting, families are asked to complete a survey questionnaire that addresses individual/family satisfaction of services and asks for feedback regarding how/what we can do to improve.
