The Spectrum C.A.R.E.S. Team was created to help families with children and teenagers in crisis.
C.A.R.E.S. will answer questions and concerns about a youth by phone and/or meeting with a youth and a caregiver in the community or at the home.
Who can call C.A.R.E.S.?
Any parent, caregiver, youth, service provider or other community person who is concerned about a youth or family in crisis can call C.A.R.E.S.
What happens when C.A.R.E.S. meets with youth and families?
C.A.R.E.S. will interview a caregiver and youth to determine what the problems are and how serious they may be. The goal of the C.A.R.E.S. program is to support families in resolving crisis situations in the home or community and to help them prevent future crisis. An effective crisis plan will be developed with the family.
