Program 2

Therapeutic Program

CMYA counseling goals are to support students and their families in their journey to an addiction-free life. This is accomplished by creating a sense of teamwork — standing together with each student and his/her family, against the problems and challenges they face. Individual counseling helps students connect with their strengths, knowledge and expertise. Group counseling provides a community of support for students to better equip them to stand against the particular problems they face. Counseling also includes family therapy, bringing the family into the community of support and enabling them to work together with their teen against their challenges while providing helpful parenting skills and sup- port groups. The counseling program helps teens and their families overcome the obstacles together.

Funding Needs

CMYA is currently taking our organization to the next level of success for our students and families. This year we have restructured our management team to enable the organization to increase fundraising and marketing efforts. 1. Continue to provide scholarships for all families that want to attend our program no matter what their financial situation. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 for our 2013-2014 scholarship fund. 2. Increase the numbers of students that attend our program we are focusing on marketing. We have been told many times throughout the last several years that we are the best kept secret for families that need help. We do not want to be a secret but want every family in need to have knowledge of our program. 3. Board Development- continue to develop our Board of Directors- recruiting more members and educating our current members in fundraising techniques. 4. Increase income for our staff- CMYA has offered every family that has walked through our doors a scholarship if needed. Unfortunately, this means our staff has volunteered 1000's of unpaid hours and staff turnover has been high. One of our goals is to focus on this need this year. 5. Technology- Common Core Academic Standards and 21st Century Skills had increased the importance of technology in the classroom. This brings with it cost to enhance current technology, software, textbooks and staff trainings to enable implementation of these resources.
