Why Work Here?

Meaningful Work - Making a Difference in the lives of Children and Families

The Family Behavioral Health system provides an integrated and flexible array of strengths-based services and supports centered around one predominant belief: Children need their families and families need their children. Whenever possible, children should grow up within their own families or extended families, and in their own communities. If separation from a parent or parents is unavoidable, we continue to work toward preserving the family relationship, and whenever possible, continue to focus efforts on reunification. In an intervention, which is truly family-driven and strengths-based, the framework is fairly simple. Initially, we find out what families need in order to stabilize and remain together. Subsequently, we work together with the child and family members, using a team-based approach to meet those needs, and we never give up. Family Behavioral Health therapists are well known for innovative therapeutic techniques and non-traditional interventions. Youth and families referred to us have generally experienced a number of traditional services without success. Our families tend to be those for whom nothing else has worked, and all other viable treatment alternatives have been exhausted. Many have all but given up on professional services, and our first task may be to help them see hope for change and growth. Rather than following a strict and prescriptive “model,” we offer individualized and tailored family-centered services, using a strengths-based and team-based collaborative approach. Natural supports are an integral component of every intervention.
