Family Support Services
At Ohio MENTOR, we believe that every family possesses the natural strengths and abilities it needs to overcome challenges—and we’re here to support them each step of the way. Our Family Support Services provide in-home and community-based supports to help children and family members create a positive path for their lives. We support children and their families in working through behavioral and emotional challenges right in their homes and communities, helping them to:
- Develop a hopeful outlook for the future.
- Choose a positive direction for their lives.
- Deal with trauma in a safe, supportive therapy setting.
- Set positive goals and recognize their natural strengths for reaching them.
- Build strong family relationships that can better support the child on his or her life journey.
