NYAP's Emergency Shelter Care program serves adolescent males, ages 11-20 on an emergency basis. These youth may have extensive histories of abuse, neglect and prior placements in institutional care. A number of youth served are also involved with the juvenile justice system.
Services are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by referral from the custodial county, with para-professional and degreed or licensed social work employees providing for basic needs, structured group activities, social/recreational outings and educational programming.
The program is designed to be a 30-day, short-term stay for youth. Additional services may include diagnostic assessment and counseling/psychotherapy for eligible youth.
