Children face a multitude of stressors, from social media and peer pressure at school to anxiety over sports and academics. If a child is also dealing with a trauma, changes in the home or an underlying issues like depression or anxiety, life can quickly become overwhelming.
Through partnerships with our local schools, HSS works alongside school social workers and counselors to meet with students struggling to cope with a myriad of social and emotional issues.
We also offer counseling at our offices for children ages 5 and up – and their families.
HSS offers a program to youth, age 14-30, assisting in their transition
from high school into productive adult lives. A Life Plan, focused on each youth’s interests, talents and dreams, is built through Person Centered Planning and the Discovery Model.
The Plan is then put into action to accomplish educational and occupational dreams. It may start with professional intervention but moves into natural support.
