For Males and Females, Ages 12 - 21

NYAP's Emergency Shelter Care program serves adolescent males and females, ages 12-21 on an emergency basis. These youth may have extensive histories of abuse, neglect, other forms of victimization, behavioral health needs, and prior placements in institutional care. A number of youth served are also involved with the juvenile justice system.

Placement services are provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by referral from the custodial agency, with credentialed behavioral health staff providing clinical assessment, behavioral intervention, case management, and reunification supports with family/kinship.

The program is designed to be a 30-45 day, short-term stay for youth, effectively addressing the need for youth safety, crisis stabilization, and return to family/community living.
