Company Description

The Becket Family of Services provides an array of youth and family driven solutions, including home based treatment, family support, mentoring, residential respite, targeted case management, academic support, family therapy, and other therapeutic interventions. Becket is a proud supporter of the Building Bridges Initiative and is guided by the Joint Resolution to Advance a Statement of Shared Core Principles, with a goal to “advance partnerships among residential and community based service providers, youth and families to improve lives.”

Becket provides culturally sensitive, therapeutic services that are the linchpin for ongoing collaboration between the most important stakeholders in a child’s life, ensuring that each child has the support necessary to overcome challenges and move forward. Drawing upon nearly 50 years of organizational history, our experienced and innovative leadership team begins by creating a comprehensive, individualized plan for each client that focuses not only on the care we provide but also on the transitions that occur during and following their experiences with Becket.

Regardless of where and how youth and families are served, we believe planning must focus on supporting permanent and sustainable residence at home and in the individual’s community. Permanent solutions come as the result of dynamic and faithfully executed plans that address all aspects of a client’s life, including intellectual development, mental health, physical health, family dynamics, and leisure time.  Plans are evidence based, family driven and youth guided.
