At COFY, our mission is to restore relationships and build hope. When possible, we strive to keep youth with their caregivers and out of residential institutions so they can stay in their communities. By creating a strong therapeutic relationship, we provide support and structure so that each child and family can tap into their inner strength and resilience. Ultimately, we guide families to heal relationships and build a solid future.
At the heart of our work is Therapeutic Behavioral Services (TBS), which provides intensive intervention designed to keep children and youth with their own families and communities, rather than in residential homes or institutions. To this end, we provide personalized and empathetic home-based community mental health services that engage clients in their homes, schools, and the communities. By sending our staff to the places where our clients live and learn, they can gain a true understanding of the problems so they can start to help with the solutions. We use a variety of techniques to foster resiliency and skill building in our clients and help them reconnect and rebuild healthy relationships with their families and communities.
