Andrews Center provides services to at-risk youth at no charge through a partnership with Networks/STAR – a provider of in-home, family preservation services.
Services include skills training, counseling, and case management for youth and their families. The primary goal of Networks/STAR is to preserve and support family relationships by reducing family conflict and preventing runaways, truancy at school, and delinquent behaviors. Youth may also receive brief crisis housing services.
Children under 18 are eligible if family conflict, a truancy problem, or a runaway issue is present. Children are not eligible if they are on formal probation or have an open Child Protective Services (CPS) case. Anyone may refer a child for services and a child may refer him or herself. Brief crisis residential services are not available to children under 10.
Families and youth in crisis will be contacted within 24 hours of calling the program. Other calls for service will be answered within seven days. All referrals will be assigned a caseworker.
These services are funded by the Department of Family and Protective Services and are provided for free to those eligible.
Normal business hours are M-F, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Caseworkers offer flexible hours and will meet at a time and location most convenient for the youth and family. A caseworker is always on call, 24/7.
