Foster Care Services
SCYAP Foster Care Services focus on the power of family. In a foster home, children who have suffered abuse and neglect, have the opportunity to share in healthy family relationships, to experience positive parenting, to learn and practice pro-social skills, and to productively participate in community life.
Operating under the conviction that youth should be with their families and served in their communities whenever and wherever possible, SCYAP’s Community-Based Services (CBS) are non-residential services that are provided within the youth/family’s home, school or community. Services are provided at times when our youth and families can best access them (i.e., afterschool, in the evenings, on weekends). SCYAP’s Community-Based Services include Wraparound Services, Diagnostic/Clinical Assessments, Transportation Services, In-Home Family Services, and the Youth Opportunities Program (YOP).
Mental Health Services
SCYAP’s Mental Health Services (MHS) are provided by mental health professionals using individualized treatment plans to meet the client and family’s needs with individual therapy and/or family therapy. SCYAP is committed to providing trauma-informed, family focused services to improve the lives of children, youth, and families. We are sensitive to the unique strengths and challenges each child has and are committed to helping overcome these challenges to improve each client’s overall wellness and quality of life. SCYAP’s Mental Health Services include Consultation and Assessment, Individual Counseling, Family Counseling, and In-Home Support Services.
The youth that we serve have a variety of needs when they come into our care. When you donate, you help to make a difference.
SCYAP has developed several initiatives to help meet some of these needs that are not covered by either federal or state funding. Without the generosity of donors, like you, these opportunities would not be possible.
If you would like to make a donation to help us care for our special foster children, we would appreciate any help you can give us. You can make a general donation that will be used to help care for our children in numerous ways.
