Helping children find success at home, school, and the community.
Every child is different with unique needs. Pathways to Success strengthens access to services for children with significant behavioral health challenges and their families.
Through Pathways to Success, we help:
Improve your family’s relationship
Create a more stable living situation
Increase your family’s involvement in behavioral health services
Improve school attendance and performance
Reduce contact with law enforcement and child welfare
Finding Success Together
When we begin working with your family, we will complete a Strengths, Needs, and Cultural Discovery assessment. By telling us your family’s story, we learn how to best help you.
We help you create a Crisis Prevention and Safety Plan (CPSP). Your family will learn what a crisis is, how to reduce the intensity of a crisis, and how to overcome a crisis.
Together, we also help you create a Child and Family Team. Members of the team could be family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, mentors, coaches, and more. The team meets regularly to create a unique care plan for your child.
