welcome to harborcreek youth services
Harborcreek Youth Services (HYS) was founded in 1911 and has a history of service to the community that spans over 100 years. HYS provides a range of residential and in-home services to children and their families. The HYS Residential program accepts youth from multiple counties throughout the state of Pennsylvania who are in need of intensive and effective therapeutic services. Our Multisystemic Therapy Program and the CRR-Host Home program accept youth from Erie County.
The agency is a fully accredited child and family social service agency in compliance with all statutory requirements set by the Department of Public Welfare (DPW) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). We are proud to be recognized as the 2013 PA-JCJC Residential Program of the Year sponsored by the Juvenile Court Judge's Commission and the Pennsylvania Council of Chief Juvenile Probation Officers.
These certifications are consistent with agency efforts over the past decade in prioritizing the delivery of science-based services, including a Trauma-Informed Care Practice Model. In addition to formal licensing status, Harborcreek Youth Services has also attained certification from two national standard setting groups.
During 2013, we will begin implementing a new client health information system as we continue our commitment to client confidentiality and improved internal processes while adhering to strict HIPPA regulations. We will also continue our Performance and Quality Improvement Program of extensive data collection and outcome measurement for all agency sites and programs.
