The Community Counseling Program provides counseling, case-management and referral assistance to children, youth and families faced with the threat of homelessness. While most of our current programming addresses teens who are already homeless, runaway, or leading transient lifestyles, the Community Counseling Program targets at-risk teens to prevent youth homelessness.
Free counseling services are available for individuals, groups and families (ages 8-24) in the community who are facing family conflict, behavioral/mental problems, engaging in at-risk behavior and are often truant from school. Our goal is to give youth the opportunity to receive help before family and personal problems escalate, which often create circumstances in which teens are likely to run away or resort to life on the streets.
Promise House also conducts two weekly parenting class (one in English and one in Spanish). During these sessions, parents learn healthy strategies for communicating, establishing boundaries, and building a child’s self-esteem.
