At Youth Villages we see ourselves as the force for families. This year, Youth Villages will serve more than 1,000 youth and families throughout North Carolina. Certified by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services as one of the only statewide Critical Access Behavioral Health Agencies, Youth Villages continues to expand programs, including our core services of intensive in-home, Multisystemic Therapy and transitional living, in addition to medication management and outpatient therapy.

During the process of expanding our CABHA services throughout Youth Villages’ 10 offices, we remain committed to tracking outcomes while operating a cost-effective model. In fact, our intensive in-home program has maintained measurable outcomes for the past 17 years, and in 2005 we re-branded our service as a national standard for intensive in-home and named the program Intercept. As we continue to expand our CABHA services, Youth Villages remains dedicated to maintaining our average success rate of 80 percent of youth living successfully, experiencing no involvement with the law and pursuing an educational track even one year after discharge. Youth Villages continues to strive to change the way each child is served throughout the state by focusing on a model that features a success rate nearly twice the national average while operating at one-third the cost, compared to traditional child welfare services.

Thank you for taking time to read our blog and experience how Youth Villages is a force for good, a force for change and the force for families.

North Carolina State Director
