The intervention services available with these funds will provide opportunities for families and teenagers to secure help at Eagle Village. Life-changing services available include:
- Family Challenge Weekends where parents and youth attend together, learning new skills and insight into their relationships. Families identify issues, learn to communicate, set limits and goals and develop conflict resolution strategies.
- Youth Challenge Weekends confront behavior patterns that create disturbances in the family or community. Teens attend with peers and discover a sense of purpose and self-esteem. They are empowered to take on new behaviors that are positive for self, family and community and learn to be accountable and responsible for their own actions.
- Summer Camps for at-risk youth will challenge, excite and encourage pre-teens and teens that push back against authority, struggle behaviorally or are challenged to control their anger.
- Changing Lanes Intervention Program- Designed as a “wake-up call” for troubled teenagers, Changing Lanes provides the opportunity and tools to learn new ways to make healthier choices by examining their old behaviors. They learn new communication skills, anger management and life-skills training.
Larry Emig from the Osceola Community Foundation said, “Eagle Village has been a part of our community for many years providing excellent programs of various types to children and families in need. Their prevention programs help by intervening early in family crisis situations to avoid more serious issues or out-of-home placement. OCCF is pleased to help provide assistance for scholarships for families from Osceola County who wish to participate and obtain help from these programs but can’t afford to.”
