Providing Safe and Effective Programs to Strengthen Youth & Families
Today, Arnette House consists of an Emergency Shelter licensed to serve 24 youth, two Long Term Group Homes which serve 6 youth each, and a Non-Residential Family Counseling program. Our Emergency Shelter serves adolescents 10-17 years old who are homeless, runaways, ungovernable, truant, and child welfare clients. Our Long-Term Group Homes provide a stable home for difficult to place child welfare clients 13-17 years old. Finally, the Non-Residential Family Counseling Program serves clients who are 6-17 years old and are experiencing behavioral problems in school as a result of social, emotional, educational, and/or family issues. As part of our non-residential services, we also offer the Stop Now And Plan (SNAP) program which is an evidence based, cognitive-behavioral model that includes the identified child and their parents and siblings. SNAP serves youth who are 6-11 years old who are experiencing difficulty controlling their emotions and behavior and teaches parents effective child management and SNAP strategies.
