ABOUT 

Helping children, youth, young adults and their families

Helping children, youth, young adults and their families find their path to healing and hope is at the core of our work. We can only achieve this by striving for excellence and providing an array of services that is needed and wanted by the community we serve. As an agency already using evidence-based practices, we are enhancing the quality and effectiveness of our work by initiating a new trauma care model – Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC). At the same time, we are expanding our service array and locations where we provide services. Ryther has therapists in more schools and social service agencies, we have launched a “health home” program (coordinating care for children with both a serious physical health issue and behavioral health care issues), and we added a day treatment program. As we expand our services to serve more than 800 children, youth and young adults each month – regardless of payer, gender identity, sexual orientation, race or ethnicity or place of origin – we do so with the intention that we would want our own families to use these services should they need them.
