Child and Family Services

YDS is focused on the family as a unit. YDS strives to offer services such as referrals to mental health providers, wrap-around services, and skill coaching to prevent out of home placement. Action plans are developed with the team to address the needs of the child and family to encourage a successful return home. If those services do not meet the needs of the family, we will then accept the child for long or short term care.
An Individualized Service Plan of Care is developed for each youth based upon the youth’s and family’s unique needs. Focus is on social, emotional and educational needs. The plan is developed by a multidisciplinary team consisting of the youth, their family, their support systems, Wyoming Department of Family Services if appropriate, school personnel, mental health providers, and YDS.
