Who We Serve

Who We Serve

SCYAP serves both males and females and does not discriminate by race, color, religious creed, ancestry, gender, gender expression, national origin, sexual orientation, or the seriousness or complexity of disability or need.

The primary target population served by SCYAP is considered to be at-risk or special needs children.

We serve children with a broad spectrum of emotional, behavioral, mental, and medical needs and their families.  

Typically these children are in need of out-of-home therapeutic care, community-based programming, and/or in-home intervention services.

Depending on the service(s) provided, SCYAP is able to serve children ages  birth to twenty-one and their families.
