How We Make A Difference

Our Programs Include:

Family Partnership Program: Our Family Partnership Program is both a non-crisis and intensive family preservation program that preserves and strengthens family unity by serving families who are at-risk for having one or more children placed out-of-home due to abuse, neglect, truancy, substance abuse or severe parent/child conflict.

Foster Care Program: Three Rivers Youth’s Foster Care Program serves child-welfare youth 0-21 years old who have been removed from their homes. These youth have a history of neglect, abuse, truancy and often behavioral and substance abuse issues. Our program utilizes nurturing, caring and supportive foster parents to provide a safe, stable, and supportive environment for our foster youth.
