Is your child experiencing emotional or behavioral difficulties, or difficulty at school and with making friends? Do you feel like your family is in crisis?
Our community-based/in-home services work with families that are involved with systems such as mental health, child welfare, and juvenile justice to focus on keeping children and youth in their homes and communities, and to decrease parental stress, family conflict, and social and emotional difficulties that can create crises. Our services are flexible and attentive to the daily needs of families, and can occur in the home, at school, or in the community. Our staff are available to assist families during non-traditional hours, can be reached during a crisis, and provide services that are intensive and comprehensive- often seeing families several times per week.
Pressley Ridge’s community-based services are at no cost to families, but rather are funded by the child and family serving system in which they are involved, i.e. Medicaid, Child Welfare.
Effective treatment starts at home.
We believe that everyone deserves a chance to feel important, loved and a sense of belonging. Services delivered in the home and community allow children, youth and their families to grow and make changes while remaining together as a family. All family members are important and are included in services, even natural supports identified by the family. Treatment delivered in the home can prevent a child or youth from being placed in residential facilities, hospitals, or foster care. Community-based staff are therapists, service coordinators, advocates, and other specialists that partner with families to create goals and make important changes. Pressley Ridge’s community-based services coordinate and collaborate with schools other professionals and service providers working with families to create an effective inter-agency team.
Building stronger families.
Pressley Ridge’s community-based services understand that families are sometimes struggling with more than one problem, and we are skilled with helping in a variety of ways. Our staff see people and families as unique with individualized strengths and needs. We take into account the whole person and/or family and their unique path towards recovery in our work. Our staff are trained to address the variety of co-occurring concerns that may be happening for a family, such as mental health, substance use, life skills and daily living, physical health, and ensuring that families are meeting their basic needs.
