Family Advocacy Services – Good Shepherd Services
While students are receiving treatment at Good Shepherd Services we strongly encourage our parents and guardians to actively participate in all aspects of family programming. Your support and presence gives your child that extra special assistance to be successful. Good Shepherd Services offers daily family contact through visiting and phone calls, weekly meetings with therapists and a variety of planned family activities occurring at least two or three times a month. Download Visitation Schedule and Guidelines to view a complete schedule of when you can visit your child.
Download our October 2016 Calendar of Good Shepherd Services events to find out about family cookouts, family dinners, and other fun activities to share with your child. The calendar also provides dates and times for supportive workshops for our parents that include such topics as dealing with substance abuse, trauma, violent and aggressive behaviors and understanding behavioral health diagnoses. Last but not least, our monthly family meetings also provide you with information about unit routines, school programming and important contacts to assist you with any questions you might have for us. Join us for our Octoberfest-2016 event on October 20th or our Cultures Around the World Event on October 4th! Please note our 2016 Back to School Event on September 21st is POSTPONED!
