Truancy Diversion Social Work Program
The Truancy Diversion Social Work Program is designed to work with school-age children and adolescents experiencing truancy. The program focuses on an early intervention approach to more efficiently address the needs of both the children and their families. The goal is to improve school attendance by addressing the underlying difficulties within families that may lead to truancy. The program seeks to help families maintain a safe, stable and healthy environment so that each child reaches his full potential.

Youth Services Program
The Youth Services Program was developed to provide prevention/early intervention services to children who were having their first contact with the juvenile justice system. This intensive home-based service is provided to the child and family either through direct services or by referrals to community agencies. The goal is to prevent continued involvement with the juvenile justice or child welfare systems. The Youth Services Program is implemented by a consortium of Alliance partner agencies including Elkins Mountain Schools, Burlington United Methodist Family Services and Children's Home Society.
