Community-Based Services for Positive Youth Development
Green Chimneys extends its expertise in mental health and positive youth development to children and teens across Putnam County and bordering areas with comprehensive prevention/intervention services. Home- and community-based programs provide support to local youth of all ages, including runaway, homeless, street and foster care youth. We seek to empower young people with vital skills and resources to help them enter adulthood as confident, responsible members of their communities.
From fun and constructive activity programs at the Community Outreach Center to the safety and support of Arbor House youth shelter, Green Chimneys offers a wide range of support services for all ages up 21 years old. The goal of Green Chimneys’ community-based programs is to connect families with necessary resources for their children, encourage conflict resolution, and help strengthen family communication and optimal functioning through comprehensive prevention and intervention services.
Services are available throughout the year with special programming offered during summer months and school vacations.
All services are free and confidential. Bilingual staff available.
Crisis support can be accessed through a case manager or by calling our 24-hour hotline: 845.279.2588
