Services for Children

child, children

The most vulnerable members of our community are children, and we are committed to providing protective, supportive, and nurturing spaces for children.

Children often are diagnosed with psychosis, depression, bipolar disorder, and post- traumatic stress disorder. Many of these issues are brought on by trauma, and our services are designed to help a child and its family work through these experiences so that they can go on to lead healthier, more productive lives.

Our goal is to empower parents, as well as children. That’s because both parents and children thrive when parents provide not only affection, but also respectful communication and listening, consistent rules and expectations, and safe opportunities to promote independence.

How The Jewish Board can help:

  • We offer intensive clinical services including psychiatric treatment. Individual, family, group, and other types of therapies are provided in a structured and nurturing home-like environment.
  • Through our Child Development Center, we provide help in areas such as delayed language and sensory processing skills, anxiety, and school difficulties
  • Preventive services, which helps to keep together families who are struggling with anger management, poor communication, relationship issues, or drug and alcohol abuse
  • Offers 24-hour respite care for up to two weeks for children and adolescents in need of temporary placement outside the home.
  • In addition to academic classes and therapy sessions, students attend socialization and recreational programs. The overall mission of the program is to help students achieve their academic potential while developing self-esteem and a positive association with learning.
  • Our Blended Case Management service helps families access the services and supports they need, the program minimizes hospitalizations, emergency-room visits and residential placements, keeping children in their communities.
  • Through Home and Community Based Services Program, our goal is to help families care for the special needs of these children and enable the children to remain at home with their family. Services are delivered on an outreach basis, primarily through home visitation.
  • In a crisis, we provide short-term, intensive crisis intervention to attempt to avoid hospitalization for children and adolescents, who are at imminent risk of psychiatric hospitalization
