If your family is dealing with a difficult issue, family conflict, school problems, or behavioral or emotional concerns, you’re not alone. All families have problems. But the good news is, we are here to help. The Huck House Family Support Program specializes in working with young people and their families to identify strengths, develop coping skills, and change negative behaviors. We help family members learn how to talk to each other and work together to make long term changes that will benefit the entire family.
We work with young people throughout Central Ohio and their families.
Our counseling services are available to youth ages 12 to 22 and their families. We often work with youth who have spent time in our Crisis Shelter and those in our Transitional Living Program. But we work with many other families in our community as well. We help families address a wide range of issues including:
You don’t have to come to Huck House for counseling.
We do offer a safe and confidential environment for counseling at Huck House. And we do have a couch—but you don’t have to lie down on it or even sit on it if you don’t want. You actually don’t even if have to come to Huck House at all. If you can’t or prefer not to come to us, we can come to you. We can meet you at your home, at your child’s school, or even at the park if that’s best for you. We offer counseling services during the day as well as evenings to fit your family’s schedule.
There is no charge for our services.
Our counseling services are free to the families we serve. If you have Medicaid, your benefits will cover your counseling. If you don’t have insurance, the cost is covered by the Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Board of Franklin County. Currently, we cannot serve families with private insurance, and we will refer those families to another program.
