Community Programs for Children

For the families of children struggling through mental or behavioral health challenges, daily life can be difficult and parents may not know where to turn or what services or options are available.

Beacon Light offers a variety of community-based programs that work with children and families in their homes or schools. These programs are designed to help children cope with the struggles of mental and behavioral health issues without being removed from their home environment. Because no two individuals are the same, Beacon Light offers a variety of programs so that different approaches can be tried until a successsful one is found.
