YOW addresses the needs of youth across all life domains to promote alternative, positive activities that empower, improve self-efficacy and build social competence.
The services provided to consumers include, but are not limited to, clinical assessment, client service plan development, counseling, mental health rehabilitation, case management, housing assistance, career readiness skills, education planning, vocational/trade school linkage and life skills training. Services are routinely provided in English and Spanish (clients with other language needs are addressed on a case-by-case basis) and are available to Orange County residents who have been involved with juvenile probation.
YOW takes pride in being persistent and remaining flexible and adaptable to minimize resistance and encourage trust and consumer participation.
