Family Peer Support


Family Peer Support (FPS) is a non-clinical service being offered to families of transition aged youth in Luzerne and Wyoming Counties. FPS will assist families to build on their strengths to achieve desired outcomes. Our goal is to increase the youth’s ability to function better in the home, school and community by educating parents/caregivers, connecting them to different resources and assisting with problem solving.

The FPS team has experience raising a child/children with a mental health diagnosis and can relate to the families they work with by helping the parent/caregiver foster acceptance and understanding of their youth’s needs.

FPS serves as a role model demonstrating how to have effective relationships, interactions and behaviors. FPS will share their own experiences as needed to establish a bond based on similar experiences.

FPS helps families to gain the knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively manage their own needs and move to more family independence.

This service will be available to families who need guidance with transition aged youth ages 16-25 years old.
