Chris 180 helps at-risk children, young adults, and families through mental health counseling. They also offer group homes for abused and neglected children in foster care, adoption services, a Drop-In Center for homeless young adults, and a supportive housing program for single and parenting youth, ages 17-24, who are homeless or have aged out of the foster care system, and in home programs that strengthen families.
This NMTC project allows Chris 180 to build a new training and education center. Additionally, it creates a health clinic, facilities for assessment, and family preservation services and for children in foster care. This project consists of several components: new construction of a building which allows CHRIS 180 to expand its behavioral health clinical training program; renovations at an existing drop-in facility to integrate primary medical and dental services; and the acquisition and rehabilitation of five houses which provide a supportive, therapeutic family environment for children while preparing for adoption
