The Coordinated Care Program provides intervention and prevention services to support children and their families.  The program serves three types of youth:

  • High-risk, multi-need children
  • Unruly children
  • At-risk children

The goal of Coordinated Care is to support children and their families in their community, and control the number of children in residential placement.

Coordinated Care provides intensive home-based and school-based Case Management  to high-risk children.  We work with various community agencies in Warren County to provide intensive Wrap-around Services.  We also provide preventive services such as Case Management and psycho-educational groups to lower risk children.

Diversion Services - The goal of Diversion is to reduce Unruly behavior.  Diversion provides home-based and school-based Case Management and behavioral modification services to Unruly children and their families. The Youth Diversion Program will provide mediation services and conflict resolution for families with Unruly children who approach the court. It is a state and national trend to separate the treatment of Unruly and delinquent children.

Truancy Services - Coordinated Care provides truancy-related counseling.  Parents and children report to Juvenile Court once a week for group counseling.  Coordinated Care in conjunction with Juvenile Court launched project ATTEND.  This project conducts in-home case management and counseling to chronically truant youth and their parents.

The Clinical Committee is composed of representatives from BDD, Juvenile Court, Children Services, and Mental Health.
