Community Services Programs
This program is providing health education for low income children, youth and families in three rural counties of central Kentucky, Anderson, Jessamine and Woodford. In these counties, the need for health education and services exceeds the resources available to meet them. We have established partnerships that will enable us to connect families to the resources available in a comprehensive, integrated and effective way. We are partnering with several community organizations -- Anderson County Health Department, Anderson County Family and Youth Resource Centers. The primary funding for this program is generously provided through a grant from The Good Samaritan Foundation.
SIGNALS: Drug Abuse Awareness and Prevention Program

SIGNALS is an acronym for Setting Important Goals now Against Life-Threatening Substances. SIGNALS is available to any Youth-Serving Organization. It is targeted for ages 12-25.
In-Home Crisis Intervention
In-Home Crisis Intervention Services are designed to be utilized for youth and families who need access to emergency services without the youth being placed out of the home. The services include a comprehensive psychosocial assessment of the youth and family, and the completion of any additional assessments needed to better serve the youth, and 12-16 weeks of intensive home based therapeutic intervention performed by an In-Home Therapist and Case Manager. Services are initiated within 24 hours of receiving a referral, provided this meets the families needs, and staff are accessible to the family 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Services are provided in Fayette and surrounding counties and referrals are accepted from Department of Community Based Services, and Department of Juvenile Justice.
Altenative to Detention Home Monitoring Program
Alternative to Detention Home Monitoring Program- We assist the courts by monitoring youth who have been assigned Home Monitoring. We not only monitor their location, but we assist the families in accessing needed resources. Our goal is to stabilize the family so that the youth receives the help they need, so that they will not be removed from their home or placed again in the monitoring program.
