Multisystemic Therapy (MST)

MST is a family-focused, evidence-based treatment program designed to successfully assist youth struggling with complex emotional, social, and behavioral issues in transitioning from residential care back to their community.

MST interventions are delivered in the youth’s natural environment (home, school, or community) and designed in full collaboration with the child’s parents or legal guardians, family members, teachers, and other interested parties.

The goal of this program is to prevent the removal of youth from their homes and/or their involvement in the juvenile justice system. We help youth develop the abilities they need to positively modify their behavior, while also providing parents and primary caregivers the skills and resources to independently address these challenges. 

In-home visits are scheduled based on family needs and can range from multiple visits per week to one visit per month. 

Who Should Receive MST?

MST is effective in helping youth ages 10-17 with chronic, violent behavior and youth with serious emotional issues, including:

What our community is saying
“I have had the privilege of working with One Hope United and their Multisystemic Therapy program for the last three years...Not only have they worked with our children and their families to address the issues that have contributed to their delinquent behavior, but they have made time to participate in our court proceedings so that the children and families can see they have an entire team working toward their success. We are so fortunate in Kane County to have the benefit of their dedicated caseworkers and managers.”

What our clients Say
“MST helped me by getting me and my family more together, and to get along with each other and talk. But it also got me to realize to stay out of trouble and stop hanging out with the wrong peers, to stop and think before my actions. It helped me a lot so I would not hang out with the people I hang out with as much as I used to. It helped me to stay home and stay out of trouble."
