Youth Services

The HCPS Youth Services Division offers free, voluntary programs to youth experiencing crises and their families. Many of these services are voluntary and equip families with the tools for better communication and problem solving. The goal is to strengthen youth and their families before circumstances become dire enough to require the attention of county and state officials.

We accomplish this through services that include behavioral and psychological assessments, counseling for youth and families, crisis intervention, referral services and more. These services include:

Behavioral and psychosocial assessments
Counseling for youth and families
Crisis Intervention
Emergency Shelter services for youth ages 12 to 17
Prevention and early intervention services
Community Information and Referral services
Service Coordination
