HEALDSBURG Youth & Family Services

In August 2017 SOS partnered with the Healdsburg Police Department to open a second Juvenile Diversion Program.  We are starting our second year providing diversion services to first time, non-violent youth offenders in the City of Healdsburg, and have expanded to provide diversion students to at-risk youth on the Healdsburg High School campus as well.

Parent Project Classes

SOS therapists trained in the Parent Project model offer classes in Windsor and Healdsburg twice a year.  This 10 week class is taught by a team approach with two therapists, and with support from police officers from the Town Of Windsor Police Department.  The classes, Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior, is a 10 week program designed for parents raising difficult or strong-willed adolescent children, ages 10 and up and provides loving and concrete, no-nonsense solutions to even the most destructive of adolescent behaviors.

Feedback from Parent participants:

“This material and group has changed my life. I am much more confident with my teen parenting skills and my teens have already benefited. I can’t thank you enough.  I hope this class takes off to help Windsor and Sonoma County (and beyond!) parents for years to come.  Our community as a whole will benefit.”

“I’m so very grateful for this experience and opportunity.”
