Impact

ACS provided mental health services to 438 court-involved children and families last year. We intervene at critical points in a child’s life when positive outcomes are still possible. Our staff, composed of social workers, mental health counselors, and psychologists, provide these services at no-cost to children and families.

 

In FY18, ACS staff provided:

  • 508 comprehensive diagnostic evaluations
  • 98 same-day emergency evaluations
  • 209 hours of no-cost treatment provided
  • 237 kids and families receiving Education & Advocacy services

 

ACS identified three key measures to track children’s outcomes and program effectiveness. Our highly skilled clinicians follow-up with the clients and families to track these specific outcomes.

  • 79% of children increased their compliance with treatment and recommendations
  • 83% of children improved their attendance at school or an alternative educational setting
  • 89% of families became more engaged in treatment
