A Place Called Home (APCH) implements a Family Systems Wraparound Program. The project will address the behavioral, educational, social and emotional issues APCH members and their parents face every day. The goal of the project is to provide youth and parents with the tools they need to identify and address negative, destructive, and/or counter-productive behaviors, and to promote growth and acquisition of new skills. The project will offer free weekly individual counseling sessions for at-risk youth ages 8 to 17 and their families, case management, and training for the Counseling Department and APCH Program Staff who offer direct service to APCH members. At-risk youth are members identified by poor academic performance, behavioral and disciplinary challenges as evidenced by school/center suspensions, truancy, poor school/center attendance, and gang affiliation. Key performance measures include: reduction in school drop-out rates, improved social competency, and improved academic performance. NCA/NCF
