What others say about Youth Villages in Massachusetts…

July 14, 2010

Carol Sylvestre, program director, Family Networks Lawrence Area Office, offers the following testimonial about working with Youth Villages:

Carol Sylvestre


The Lawrence Area Office has had great success with Youth Villages. The counselors show exceptional dedication to the families, and the level of support the counselors receive from supervisors is also phenomenal. If a family is in crisis, it is not uncommon for the counselor and the supervisor to go out to the family’s home and help deescalate the situation. They will spend as much time as is necessary with the family. They work to help ensure families sustain themselves by reaching out to natural supports in the community.

Most of the families we refer would most likely have had a child placed out of the home if it weren’t for Youth Villages.

Many families have dealt with mulitple providers over the years and feel like nothing has worked — Youth Villages does a nice job of eliminating that barrier and making parents and children feel supported.
