Social Service Programs
At Felton Institute, we place special emphasis on the needs of children, youth, families, older adults, those with mental health concerns, those with disabilities, and individuals impacted by the criminal justice system.
Children, Youth and Family (CYF)
Felton’s CYF Services programs provides early care and education for children birth to six years old, including those with special needs. It also provides case management services to children and youth 4-21 years old and their families. Pregnant and parenting teens, up to 24 years of age, can use case management and parenting education services.
Transitional Age Youth (TAY)
Several Felton mental health programs are geared towards helping the transitional age youth, 16-25, with severe and persistent mental health issues, to stabilize their lives, and to become more independent, productive, and satisfied members of their communities. The programs also work with family members, significant others, and support persons in the clients’ lives.
Felton’s Adult Services Division responds by placing a particular emphasis on the needs of low-income individuals and families, people living with disabilities, and the Deaf community. We work with people from all walks of life, aged 18-60 years, including those with mental illness and substance abuse challenges.
Felton’s Justice Services Division programs serve those who are insecurely housed or unhoused, the formerly incarcerated, those with substance use and unaddressed mental health disorders. Taking a harm-reduction approach, Felton services include case management, assessments and wellness intervention.
The Senior Division addresses the unique needs of our community’s most vulnerable and fragile aging population. Our programs are designed to meet a wide range of needs while allowing seniors to age with dignity and to thrive and live a life of purpose. We aim to help older adults by connecting them to resources and services.
