Behavioral Health Services

Hope Community Services, (HCS) passionately serves the emotional needs of children and families who are at risk due to the impact of abuse, neglect, and trauma. HCS strives to get each child back on a normal developmental path and to prevent them from developing any long-term trauma-related mental or behavioral health problems. HCS provides the healing and support needed for a bright and healthy future for the children and families we serve through our Outpatient Behavioral Health Services Department.

HCS’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Services Department encompasses individualized services to meet children and family’s needs through a variety of services. Services are culturally competent and linguistically appropriate, strength-based and incorporate community supports to maximize resiliency and minimize the recurrence of symptoms.  Treatment frequency, modality and duration vary based upon individual client needs and preferences.  Services can be provided in an office setting, community, and home and may address trauma, family functioning, substance use/abuse and skills development.
