JCCA’s Care Management Programs offer a series of services to help emotionally fragile children and adolescents (ages 5-17.9) who need ongoing mental health support, to help them live in the community. We enable the children to grow and become independent and engaged in the work and social life of the community. Home and field visits are provided to ensure that clients receive all necessary health, mental health, educational, vocational, housing, social, recreational and financial services. With help, many families can resolve immediate problems and keep children safely at home. Programs offer rapid assessment, crisis intervention and treatment to assist families at critical points. JCCA provides collaborative outreach and links families to schools, courts, health care, recreation and community services.
