FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

AM I IN TROUBLE?

WILL MY CHILD GET TAKEN AWAY?

  • Staircase Youth Services does not have the authority to remove a child from a home.  Our goal is to find healthy solutions that solve conflicts.

ARE YOU GOING TO COME TO MY HOUSE?

HOW DID MY CHILD GET CONNECTED TO YOUR PROGRAM?

  • Most youth are connected to our program on a referral basis (teachers, friends, counselors, family or anyone with a genuine concern). 

HOW IN​VOLVED DO I HAVE TO BE?

  • Families are welcome to be involved as much as they would like.  If the youth is under 18, parental consent is needed.
