KidsPeace Community Programs provide services to kids, biological families, and foster families in the communities where they live, in an effort to ensure continued health and happiness for every kid.
In 2012, 50 percent of our clients were served through community programs.
Specialized services are provided to children with Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnoses and include Behavioral Health Rehabilitation Services (BHRS), after school programs, the Sarah’s Smile summer therapeutic program and an educational classroom.
KidsPeace professionals bring services such as therapy, life and parenting skills training, problem solving, education and self-esteem building to children and families in their homes. Other counselors visit public schools to assist guidance staff. And each day, KidsPeace vans pick up children after school and bring them to community programs for therapy, supervision, recreation, educational support and a nutritious meal.
