Shelter/Respite Services

Arbor House is a voluntary safe house that serves youth, ages 12-17. During their stay, youth receive an array of support services including individual and family counseling, case management, referral assistance and life skills training. Youth also participate in recreational activities and group meetings that enhance social skills and positive peer interactions. Youth in residence at Arbor House are maintained in their current school program.

Case Management

Arbor House also offers a case management program for individual and family counseling, and intervention services to youth up to 21 years, who are experiencing conflict within the home, have run away or are thinking of running away, or who have been displaced from their homes. Case management services assist families in achieving goals and maintaining a safe living environment. Case managers also coordinate additional services as needed to ensure the best provision of services for youth and families. Referrals for legal services, educational advocacy, and basic need assistance can also be provided.

Crisis Intervention can be accessed through a case manager or by calling our 24-hour hotline: 845.279.2588

All services are free and confidential and accessible 24 hours a day. Bilingual staff available.
