Mi Casa’s Student Services program provides intensive case management and evidence-based life skills classes for students and families in need of extra support. The focus of Student Services is to provide youth with opportunities to explore positive life choices, striving to build upon the youth’s strengths.
The program relies upon the collaboration between the Youth Advocate, the youth, the student’s family, the school and other supportive community partners. Youth are nominated into the program by school personnel.
Youth Advocates meet with students on their case load at least once a week, complete monthly home visits, and connect families to community resources and wraparound services. Mi Casa facilitates regular meetings with all supportive school personnel to align interventions and ensure connections among those in the child’s life.
At this time, Student Services are available for students attending one of the schools on the Lake Middle School Campus only.
