Our Mission is to help children and their families with social, emotional, behavioral, and family support. Through individual, milieu, group, and family therapy by a Licensed Therapist: as well as play, recreational, and educational support from a Community Support Worker (CSW). FyM works with elementary aged children mainly in 1st through 5th grades, that are primarily from Ranchos Elementary School. However, elementary students from other schools are welcome as well. Through our program, youth practice social and emotional skills in an emotionally safe environment through a variety of activities that are supervised by a Licensed Therapist and CSW. At Ranchos Elementary we are offer in-school services and after-school therapeutic based program. During the Summer and Holidays, we offer fun camps to continue supporting these youth and their social, emotional, and behavioral well-being.
