Chic Welcomes You

Get to Know Us

Chic (chique) Behavioral Health and Community Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth organization dedicated to providing resources and services to youth and their families. Chic utilizes a trauma-informed care approach and a prosocial approach to serve our community. We realize the widespread impact of trauma and understand potential paths for recovery. We recognize the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system. We are responding by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices; and seek to actively resist re-traumatization. We utilize a prosocial approach to offer natural ways to learn, practice, and strengthen life and social skills. These essential skills can boost mood and overall mental health and well-being. Prosocial activities can also have positive implications on self-esteem, the ability to collaborate, problem solve, build empathy toward self/others, and resilience.

Serving at-risk youth by providing youth prevention programs to those who have experienced a history of foster care involvement, child poverty, child abuse or neglect, human trafficking, and/or juvenile justice involvement. All of our services are skill-based interventions to assist in age-appropriate techniques to manage a child’s behavior in school, at home, and in the community. We use individualized services to focus on developing crucial life skills involving action-oriented interventions for both the child and their family.
