Maine Township offers youth and family services

Psychiatric Services

We have expanded our psychiatric services to include children and adolescents in addition to adults. Medicaid recipients are welcome. Please refer to our website for more details and eligibility requirements.

Summer Camp

Our summer camp is offered July 10-20 to children ages 8-13 who qualify based on family income. This camp provides a supportive and structured environment where children can improve their social skills while being exposed to new activities they may not otherwise be able to experience. Cost is $40.

Mentoring Program

We are seeing many positive outcomes from the strong relationships being formed in our Big Brothers Big Sisters site-based mentoring program, which meets two evenings each month in a safe, structured group setting. This fun, free program will help your child enhance their social skills, confidence, and ability to be successful in school and in the future.

Journey Teen Therapy Group

This free program is held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday from 5-6 p.m. and provides high school students with a safe place to speak openly about their lives and work through common concerns often encountered on the journey to adulthood. Participants learn practical and effective skills to reduce anxiety, depression, and negative self-talk. We address important topics such as mindfulness, emotional regulation, relaxation, increasing self-esteem, and stress management.
