Amistad Crisis Shelter

Amistad Crisis Shelter is a short-term (14-30 days) program that provides residential services to youth, ages 12-17. It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and also offers a 24-hour hotline. It offers the following services: crisis intervention, assessment, counseling/therapy, recreational activities, life and social skills training, case management, educational/vocational assistance, job training skills and referral assistance.

Amistad's primary focus is to reunite youth with their families. In cases where reunification is not possible, alternative placement is secured, such as foster care, residential treatment, group home, independent living or placement with other family members. Aftercare services are also available once youth discharge from the program. The program has a 16 bed capacity.
