Helping Kids & Families Succeed Since 1911
Harborcreek Youth Services (HYS) was founded in 1911 and has a history of service to the community that spans over 100 years. Our agency provides a range of residential and in-home services to children and their families. The Harborcreek Youth Services Psychiatric Residential Treatment 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 Therapeutic Foster Care Program serve youth and families from Erie County.
Harborcreek Youth Services is a fully accredited child and family social service agency in compliance with all statutory requirements set by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS). These requirements are consistent with agency efforts over the past decade in prioritizing the delivery of science-based services, including the Sanctuary Model of Care and Trauma-Informed Care Practice Models.
We have implemented a new client health information system and continue our commitment to client confidentiality and improved internal processes while adhering to strict HIPPA regulations. Harborcreek Youth Services will also continue our Performance and Quality Improvement Program of extensive data collection and outcome measurement for all agency sites and programs. We are grateful to be part of the Erie community and for your support as we work to help kids and their families succeed.
