Children’s Programs

James House offers children program services as way to empower children, help them through the healing process, and aid them to develop healthy and positive relationships.

We offer individual counseling for children affected by domestic violence and sexual violence as well as support groups for positive mental and emotional growth. Our Child and Youth Education Coordinator is focused on meeting the unique needs for the individuality of each child.

One-on-one counseling

Provides children with a healthy, comfortable, and confidential space to discuss and process their feelings, needs, and wants.

We create learning experiences that will impact the behavior and coping skills children use in their daily lives and lead to positive interactions with others.
