Community-Based Family Services
  • Behaviorial Health
  • Intact Family Support
  • Youth Services
OHU offers a comprehensive spectrum of services for individuals and families in need of intensive treatment and counseling. Our programs are evidence-based and use data to inform our practices and models, with the goal of reducing the risks to a family’s safety and well-being. We know that community-based interventions and enhanced care coordination create lasting positive outcomes, and we strive to serve as advocates for the children, parents, caregivers and guardians we serve.

OHU works with parents and children to keep their families safe, healthy and most importantly, together. Through our family preservation, counseling and other in-home and out-of-home programs, parents and guardians learn to identify and prevent potential patterns of abuse or neglect. Our qualified and compassionate caseworkers are there to strengthen ties among families, with other parents and the community at large, building a strong network of support that every family deserves.

OHU provides outreach and counseling to troubled young people and their families through a variety of programs. We work to prevent youth from entering the juvenile justice system and help those who have already been through the system to successfully reintegrate into society and return to school. Our in-home services include risk and needs assessments, family meetings, parent education and crisis intervention. All programs draw upon a family’s resources to help reduce conflict and instability while creating a healthy family dynamic.

Placement and Residential Care
  • Adoption
  • Foster Care
  • Residential
We work with children of all ages who are wards of the state due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. These children need a stable, dependable, forever home and a family they can call their own. Safe, well-educated and well-cared-for children become adults who contribute to a more prosperous community.

Hundreds of abused, neglected or abandoned children need a stable, nurturing family where they can thrive. One Hope United recruits and trains foster parents and provides myriad supportive services to children and families. Foster parents can light a child’s path toward becoming a successful adult.

Adolescence can be a difficult time for all young people. It’s a time of constant change, which can take its toll at home and in the classroom. Our residential care programs offer services to youth needing an intensive, structured environment.
