Emotional & Behavioral Health

Success 4 Kids & Families works with children and their families to diagnose and improve issues they may have with emotional and behavioral health.

 

“We were not equipped to deal with something like this” claimed one parent when their daughter began exhibiting violent behavior. S4KF stepped in, supplied the necessary help in the home, and helped the family stabilize in the years to come. “We thought we were just bad parents—S4KF educated me and taught me that I was a good parent, and gave me the tools to help my daughter and my family.”
