Supporting Struggling Families

By far this is our most important program, as the children involved are the most at-risk in our community. Many of these households are Single Parent families, most are low income, dealing with mental health issues and struggling with parenting— including ensuring children attend school. Stress from these circumstances often causes an unhealthy breakdown in inter-family relationships.

These family situations are no longer under the jurisdiction of Juvenile Court and have been referred to the Youth Service Bureaus without any associated funding. Some parents reach out for help, while others are referred from schools. TYSB staff come into the home, evaluate the family’s needs, de-escalate situations, introduce good communication strategies and rebuild family relationships. Often, we develop a top three list of services the family desperately needs and connect them to wrap around services through schools and community providers. In many cases, the family is unaware of available services that can help them.

With your help, we can support these struggling families, get children back in school, help the family function in a healthy manner and provide the tools and resources for success and happiness. There’s not a more important gift we can give than a safe and loving home for a child. Your generous gift will make that happen.
