What are the proven family solutions?
Utah Youth Village is a fully accredited Teaching-Family Model agency. The Teaching-Family Model is an evidence-based treatment system that reliably and predictably helps adults to help children and youth. The adults can be the child’s parents, mentor, house parents or foster parents. In each of these settings the Teaching-Family Model guides us to heal and elevate lives – the lives of children and their parents or care-givers.
Utah Youth Village’s Family Homes and Treatment Foster Homes provide nurturing care, consistency and direction for youth from the Utah Division of Family Services, the Ute Tribe, and Catholic Community Services.
The Utah Division of Family Services, Juvenile Courts, Division of Juvenile Justice, pediatricians, therapists, and church leaders use our Families First program to teach parents how to help their own difficult children before the state removes them from the home. A Families First specialist will spend up to 50 hours during a typical intervention in a family’s home working with the whole family.
Mentors also provide crucial services to assist children who are struggling or are in difficult foster placements.
Alpine Academy is a therapeutic boarding school for privately referred teenage girls who come from all over the United States. It provides a fully accredited junior and senior high school education, as well as specialized therapy so girls can return to their families and reclaim their lives. www.alpineacademy.org
