Helping children, youth, families, and adults in northwest Ohio

Genacross Family & Youth Services provides residential treatment, parental support, behavioral health, day treatment, and homemaker/personal care services to children, youth, families, and adults throughout Ohio and the surrounding region.

We believe the outcomes that matter most are transformed lives changed for the better. We seek to create behavioral changes in children and youth that enable them to function productively and appropriately within their respective communities. For young adults, we provide support that enables them to function more independently.

Genacross Family & Youth Services offers a full continuum of care with a seamless delivery system. We accept children and youth into the most appropriate setting based on their specific needs. Most children and youth come to us with histories of multiple failed placements, including some who have been administratively discharged from institutional settings. We are able to ensure that every person we care for receives the personal attention he or she needs with low staff-to-client ratios in both our youth and adult settings, including 1:1 or 2:1 if necessary. This is especially important in enabling us to work with high-risk individuals in an open setting.
