YAP provides youth and their families with intensive support in their homes, school and community through our wraparound-advocacy model. Staff meet with youth and families multiple times a week at times most needed by the family, with an emphasis on safety and support. Individualized service plans balance involuntary service demands with activities driven by the family's prioritized wants and needs. Activities with each youth and family vary, but are goal driven and typically include case management, crisis intervention services available 24/7, skill development, educational and vocational work.
YAP serves individuals and families across a continuum of needs, but specializes in working with those who are at highest risk. We focus on serving the most marginalized youth, adults and their families, those most at-risk of or currently in out-of-home placements, such as secure detention, jails, residential treatment centers, group homes, etc.
Because we target the most vulnerable youth and families across the country, we have found a need to tailor our approach to better meet the specific needs of these youth and families that often emerge through our work. As a result, we have developed a number of adaptations and specializations in our model based on the needs that we have identified.
