Kinnect Family Program: Kinnect Intensive
The Kinnect Intensive service is a 9-month program that targets both parents/guardians and youth through its specialized support system. The youth receives a part-time out-of-home living arrangement at our Kinenct House, which provides a break that may have become part of the family dynamic. Youths will be taught trauma-informed and developmentally appropriate life skills, emotional regulation strategies, and conflict resolution tools.
Additionally, parents/guardians receive interventions to strengthen parent-child relationships, attend weekly training sessions, and collaborate with the team on goal setting for your family.
