Within our School Based Services, we have the unique ability to provide an array of custom-tailored support services to meet each school district’s individual needs. Our services can include a comprehensive program providing intensive mental health supports within a special education classroom setting, such as our STARRS and AIM programs; a full-time behavior specialist; the ability to access our network of providers through our SPIN services; and customized training for staff, students and parents. All programs utilize evidence-based principles and are centered around our core philosophy of Wraparound care.
Our School Based Services often prove critical in the ultimate success of students, due to the lack of mental health supports and pro-social emotional supports available for students. Our services are unique in that they follow students beyond the classroom and into their homes.

We assist them with succeeding in any goal they may have set, whether it be recovering from addiction, finding success in the classroom, creating a healthy home for their family as they anticipate the birth of a child, or seeking support and community resources, all while keeping families together as they process through their traumas.
Access To Resources
We connect individuals and families with critical community resources, such as access to physical and mental health providers, employment opportunities, housing options, peer support groups, and Wraparound services. We understand that access to some of these services can be difficult to attain during certain life challenges, and we are here to help individuals and families overcome this obstacle.
