Fifteen years after Youth Villages began sending counselors into homes to help troubled children by strengthening their families, the results are in. The nonprofit organization released data today showing that its family counselors have helped nearly 17,000 children with serious emotional and behavioral problems and their families since it began offering intensive in-home services in 1994. The data show that the program helped the children, who were in state custody or at risk of entering the foster care or juvenile justice system, achieve long-term stability at home. Some 84 percent of the children who completed at least 60 days of service were living successfully at home two years after the program; 82 percent reported no trouble with the law; and 83 percent were in school or had graduated.
