Home and Community-Based
Our home and community-based services are available for families living in Juneau. We currently provide therapeutic foster care, case management and our new Healthy Families program.
Out-of-home care provided by specially trained foster parents caring for young people with significant emotional, behavioral and/or social issues. This service also includes individual and family therapy, as well as support services for Therapeutic Foster Care parents.
JYS combined the previous Family Outpatient Program, Circles of Support, School-Based & Early Childhood Services, into a single program called Healthy Families. Using the Teaching Family Model, JYS provides individual, and/or family, and/or group therapies. They also provide behavioral health support with the goal of young people learning skills to self-manage their behaviors. They are assisted and guided by their natural supports including parents, teachers, extended family and friends.
