Find support. Gain strength.
FCA helps to serve individuals in the least restrictive environment possible by providing services and supports to children and their families at home and in the community. We know the importance of providing support at early junctures in a child's life in order to prevent the onset or progression of behavioral health conditions.
By utilizing a “family-driven” process, the family is completely involved in every stage and every aspect of the process. Together, we identify individual and family strengths and create a plan of service.
Provide in-home and community based supportive services, including therapy and rehabilitative support services to children who are at risk of being diagnosed or formally diagnosed with a mental health diagnosis. Services are available to recipients of Medicaid only and include the following:
Other Licensed Practitioner (OLP) – therapy
Community Psychiatric Supports & Treatment (CPST) – counseling
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (PSR) – skill-building
Family Peer Support Services (FPSS) – family support and advocacy provided by NYS Credentialed staff with “lived parenting experience”
Youth Peer Advocacy and Training – youth support and advocacy by NYS Credentialed staff with “lived experience"
Our HCBS program offers support and services to children, ages 5 to 21, in non-institutionalized settings that enable them to remain at home and in the community.
Families have a choice of options and providers and services are flexible to meet changing needs. Children must have a Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED); a mental health diagnosis with related significant needs that place them at risk of hospitalization, institutionalization, or need to return safely home and to their community from a higher level of care. Children must also receive care management throughout enrollment.
Services include Respite to offer a break, Pre-Vocational to prepare youth to engage work and career exploration, and Caregiver Support to enhance the family’s ability to care for the child.
