This early intervention program is designed to help families develop new skills for dealing with today’s problems.Both a parent and a child attend this 12 hour class to improve their communication, relationships, and resolution of family problems by learning to make win-win decisions.
The program is designed for any family with teens and has been used for intervention when children have gotten in trouble with the law.
Statewide the program boasts that less than 10% of the youth referred by courts reoffend.(That’s 90% do not get in trouble with the law again).
In an effort to battle area child hood hunger, Youth and Family Services has partnered with the Regional Food Bank and Enid Public Schools to create food banks for children attending secondary schools.

If you are interested in referring a student to one of these programs please contact the school administration. For questions regarding the Food Pantries please contact Tree Perkins at Youth and Family Services.
