Children and Family

Centerstone knows kids! We understand that families provide the foundation for wellness and belonging that can last generations. Our work with children starts early – helping expecting parents get ready for their new baby. From there, we have specialized services for every stage to help support families and children. Families come in all shapes and sizes, and our team of dedicated experts works closely with you to develop a care plan made just for you.

We understand that helping families grow strong means we are investing in the future for all of us. Ready to get started? 1-877-HOPE123 (877-467-3123)!

School-Based Therapy

Centerstone offers School-Based Therapy in more than 750 public schools. Providing integrated mental health treatment for children and adolescents, School-Based Therapists work within preschool, elementary, middle and high school facilities, helping students overcome behavioral, emotional or social problems that interfere with success at school and at home.

Foster Care

Why should I foster a child?

The opioid epidemic has had a profound effect on children needing foster care. There are over 415,000 children in the foster care system nationwide. As a foster parent, you can provide a safe home for these children.

Foster care is a temporary, stepping-stone solution to help a child find a permanent home – by reuniting with their birth families or by being prepared for transition to adult living.


Counseling, also known as therapy, is one of the simplest ways to achieve a happier, healthier you. When you meet with a clinician for counseling, you’ll have the opportunity to speak openly about any challenges you may be having. Together, you and your counselor will work to build a plan and identify the tools to help you tackle any issues and get you back to being your full self.

Child Welfare

We provide services to children (birth to 26 years old) and their families, focusing on those who have a history of emotional issues and behavioral issues. We focus on youth with problems which have significantly impacted their ability to function at school, in their community and at home. These services include:
  • intensive 24-hour residential treatment in community group homes
  • therapeutic foster care
  • intensive in-home services
  • programs that incorporate addiction-services treatment, good child welfare practice, and family preservation into case management
  • adoption services
  • independent living/transitional living services
