Prevention Services

Children’s Home of York offers an array of services for those who require assessment and review of personal psychosocial functioning, including family relationships, behavioral addictions, anger management, criminal charges, psychological, social, cognitive and any other identified risk management possibilities.

Our continuum of evaluation services includes: diagnostic evaluation, risk assessments, parenting assessments, home studies and consideration of criminal conviction offenses in custody evaluations (5329). Our evaluation services utilize observation, historical information, surveys, standardized evaluations and interviewing in order to determine the most effective plan of care and treatment for the referred individual(s).

In addition, we offer complementary services such as supervised visitation with trained staff to ensure that a child is able to have safe contact with a non-custodial parent in a comfortable setting.

Children’s Home of York can provide Evaluation Services at our main campus location, in the client’s home or another location when necessary.
