PARENTS & CAREGIVERS
Project Return provides counseling and support to the families and caregivers of current and past residents. HEAL also gives parenting support to those families who have daughters participating in this program. In addition, we act as a resource for local parents and caregivers in need of guidance about the services available to them in this area.
Over the years Project Return staff has benefited from the knowledge of a variety of experts in the field of adolescent care and development. Here is a sampling of some of the material we have found helpful in caring for troubled teens.Communication Skills
