Center for Human Services Programs
Family Support centers offer community, family, and child development activities at several locations. We offer a variety of programming including youth development activities; Kaleidoscope Play and Learn groups provide a welcoming place where caregivers and children can play, create, and learn; Head Start; Northwest Special Families; emergency food programs and family and community events.
Our Substance Abuse Prevention, Intervention, and Treatment Program works to reduce/eliminate substance abuse within our community. Our specialists provide screening, assessments, alcohol drug education classes, and Intensive Outpatient and Outpatient treatments to youth and adults. We partner with local schools to provide prevention & intervention services, assessments, and education classes.
Our Family Counseling Program provides client-centered mental health services through a strengths-based, family-centered approach, using an array of strategies to support clients achieving their goals. Our participants may be experiencing difficulties in their lives, such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, ADD/ADHD, divorce and separations, or other family disruptions and transitions. We tailor our services to the strengths and needs of each individual. We also offer Infant Mental Health services, helping young families build healthy parenting relationships from the start.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Recently Center for Human Services was accredited for a period of three years for our Alcohol and Other Drugs/Addiction Assessment and Referral, Court Treatment, Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient Treatment programs. This is the first accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to CHS.
By pursuing and achieving accreditation, Center for Human Services has demonstrated that we meet international standards for quality and are committed to pursuing excellence. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows our organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process. It has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit its commitment to offering programs and services that are measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality.
We believe our organization is a valuable asset, and our CARF accreditation underscores our commitment to the community we serve. CHS is a vital part of your community, widely recognized as a leader in social services. At a time when requests for services at CHS have risen significantly, our role is ever more critical. Reaching over 10,000 individuals annually, there are many others in need of our services. We turn to our community for support in helping us both sustain and grow programming necessary to serve those most in need.
