SERVICES AVAILABLE AT VCSB FOR CHILDREN

Support Coordination links at-risk children and their families to services which promote successful development in social skills, increased self-esteem, and skills for interacting in the community.  We provide outpatient counseling services to children and their families in a clinical office setting. Services can be individual, family, and/or group counseling. We also aid families in accessing social services and providing parenting information. 


Intensive Care Coordination

Children Service Program

Purpose: Our ICC program strives to facilitate necessary services for children who are at risk of entering or who are placed in an out of home placement. Our purpose is to safely and effectively maintain, transition, or return the child home, to a relative's home,  or family like setting at the earliest appropriate time in addressing the child's needs. 

How We Help:  We identify the strengths and needs of the child and the family. Then identify specific services and supports that would be necessary to meet those needs. Hopefully, we link the youth and family with those services and continue to monitor to ensure success.  Setting up team meetings that are family driven and youth guided, we will closely collaborate with FAPT and continue with follow up on site visitation and regular contact. 

Criteria: A child is eligible for ICC if he or she is at risk of an out of home placement, such as foster care, residential placement, or juvenile justice placement. We provide serves to Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County.

TDT Services


Therapeutic Day Treatment 

Therapeutic Day Treatment provides intensive mental health services to students in the school environment.  Children in the program have social, emotional, or behavioral problems that interfere with their ability to function at school, home, and in the community.  Our goal is to help your child develop skills to effectively express emotions, manage behaviors, and get along with others so he or she can remain in their school and community.  This is done through therapeutic activities designed to build on your child's strengths while enhancing self-esteem and teaching new skills.

TDT services include classroom support, individual and group sessions, crisis intervention, and family/parent involvement.

TDT Services can be covered by Medicaid.  We also take other insurance and have self-pay options.

Children's Crisis Service


Purpose:  Our purpose is to assist children experiencing a mental health crisis and help minimize the devastating effects it can have on the child and family.  We want to help children remain safely in the community and to link family assistance to establish ongoing support for success.

What We Do:  We offer a short-term, goal-oriented program that provides flexible hours to fit into the family schedule.  We work to provide a treatment plan with goals to meet your support needs and address the current crisis situation.  We will also complete referrals for ongoing support after the crisis. 
We can do home, school, or office visits and advocate for the child needs.  We have 24/7 emergency service supports.
