Unique opportunities to help in Georgia

In Georgia, Youth Villages offers both in-home services in the Atlanta area and residential services at our Inner Harbour Campus in Douglasville.

This gives us a unique opportunity to effectively serve more young people and their families in the Atlanta area.

And we’re making enhancements to meet our growing needs including projects at Inner Harbour to enhance services and improve the already beautiful campus.

Inner Harbour specializes in helping children and adolescents with significant psychiatric illness and impairment in behavioral, cognitive, emotional, familial and social functioning.

Inner Harbour’s residential campus provides much more than conventional methods by immersing young people in advanced programs that stimulate learning through a series of activities that progressively challenge them.

In addition, an Atlanta office offers Intercept intensive in-home services to serve a broad population of youth, including those who are at high risk of removal from their families. The program specializes in diverting youth from out-of-home placements by helping their families safely maintain children in their home environment. Read a great success story at this link.

Intercept also focuses on reunification of youth who are in a residential or foster home setting. In many instances, we are able to return children to their homes, living with parents or relatives.

Both services place a high priority on meeting the needs of children and doing whatever it takes to get them living successfully with their families. Many of the children participating in the in-home program are part of families with difficulties, whether it is mental illness, domestic violence, substance abuse or legal trouble.

Strengthening those families means our children have better lives and our communities become stronger, too.

We thank you for your support.
