Youth Programs Through Catholic Social Services
Catholic Social Services Youth Services Programs support at-risk children, youth, and their families with compassionate care, educational opportunity, and loving homes that affirm their worth and their potential.
A Better Way within Catholic Social Services teaches social responsibility skills and conflict management skills to youths between ages 12 and 18 who are involved in the juvenile justice system. This community program utilizes the Sanctuary Model of Trauma-Informed Care to help you with issues of chronic adversity, loss, and trauma.
Out of School Time Programs are school-based community centers that offer an array of creative after-school activities in the late afternoon aimed at youth development and family support. These programs are in neighborhoods with high poverty and crime rates and significant child welfare problems. Rooted in Catholic faith, Programs are educational, social, and recreational in nature, and serve school-aged children and adolescents from the community.
