Project Reach Out
Project Reach Out works to improve the network of support to youth and their families through confidential and voluntary crisis intervention referral services. Each year, teens run away for a variety of reasons that may include unresolved conflict, lack of communication, and differences over roles, rules, and expectations. Project Reach Out can help during these difficult times by ensuring access to 24-hour crisis intervention services, reuniting youth with their families when appropriate, encouraging the resolution of inter-family problems through mediation and other services, strengthening family relationships, encouraging stable living conditions for youth, and helping youth decide upon a constructive course of action and decision making in a nonjudgmental atmosphere. Most services are offered for free or a minimal fee. For more information, call 1.715.394.9177 or 1.800.777.7844.
