Family Support Services
Do any of these sound familiar?
- “My child scares me with her anger, I can’t take it anymore.”
- “My son is coming home from the hospital, what do I do now?”
- “She’s failing and constantly getting in trouble at school, but she doesn’t seem to care.”
- “My son is really depressed and withdrawn, I don’t know how to reach him.”
If you have a child with serious behavioral, emotional or mental health needs and don’t know where to turn for help, turn to NCYF. Our Family Support Services program is designed to support you, the parent, while helping your child succeed at home, in school and within the community.
Wondering how the program will benefit you and your family?
Our teams work closely with your child and family to identify strengths, areas of concern, establish goals, and create individualized strategies to meet those goals. We work with you in your home, in the community or in our offices, depending on your specific needs.

- Improving social and problem-solving skills
