We are a national non-profit organization committed to supporting youth with significant behavioral and emotional challenges in community settings by using evidence-informed methods that build on the strengths of everyone involved.
We partner with families, schools, providers, government agencies, health insurers, and managed-care organizations to build a customized plan of care for a youth and their family. At Choices, we believe that youth and families should receive supports to keep children out of inpatient facilities, foster care, residential facilities, and juvenile detention. Strong families are the key to supporting children with significant behavioral health challenges.
Choices provides a Care Coordinator for each child and family we serve. The Care Coordinator helps build a custom plan for each youth and family. Care Coordinators:
•help families identify strengths and needs to develop plans;
•partner with families to build a team of community supports and services;
•help families track their progress;
•stay in regular contact with youth and families with face-to-face meetings and phone calls;
•provide crisis support; and
•educate, empower, and encourage youth and caregivers. – less
