Adolescence is tough!
Even those in stable, loving homes may need help navigating their rapidly changing world. There is a profound need for guidance and exploration of the conflicts presented by peer pressure, raging hormones, drugs and alcohol, self esteem issues, changes in relationships with parents, and the other complex issues our kids are confronted with every day of their teen years.
The purpose of our organization is to make counseling services affordable and available when they are most needed. Teens and their families can contact ACES directly to request services. A licensed counselor or social worker will make an assessment to identify the services needed and an appropriate provider. The options include individual counseling, family counseling and group counseling services.
We bridge the gap between crisis and covered care so kids can get help when they need it, and a sliding fee scale Sliding Scale means no one is turned away for financial reasons. Donations Contribute page make this possible. $500 can provide ten counseling sessions for a kid in crisis—and that can make all the difference.
