Crisis Support Services

For youth facing imminent risks – which can include homelessness, uncertainty after release from detention, or living in an unsafe environment – long-term solutions can only be implemented after the immediate crisis has been addressed. Working closely with individuals and families, highly trained Hillside staff offer connections to safe havens; counseling to help resolve issues that can threaten safety and inhibit personal growth; and life-skills training to match each individual with the tools they need to ensure a future of confidence and hope.
