Social Support Program

The Social Support program was developed by social work professionals, with the focus of providing ACYR youth with social-emotional support and resources to assist them with positive development, improved well-being, and tools to reach their goals.  Often times youth do not have many positive, supportive adults in their lives.

Social workers meet with youth to identify their strengths and challenges using a holistic, strengths-based approach and develop a plan to ensure the success of the individual, no matter what stage they are at in life.  This extra, critical layer of support helps empower the youth to overcome barriers, be resilient, set goals, and reach their full potential.

The Social Support program offers youth individual support sessions, peer support groups, and community resources to meet their diverse needs.  Whether a youth just needs a shoulder to lean on, or is facing major barriers to success, we have caring professionals to support them.
