Intended for Wyoming caregivers, this guide provides an overview of the array of possible appropriate and available community services that can be utilized by and for children and their families. The continuum identifies risk factors and behaviors common to each of the six levels and then matches appropriate resources that may be helpful to caregivers. The levels include: prevention, early intervention, immediate and intermediate interventions, residential interventions, transition services, and aftercare services. Charts identify behaviors and effective models and services by population for each level, and accompanying text explains each level and lists possible supports. Section 2 of the report provides a resource guide for at-risk youth that includes the following levels: family foster care, therapeutic foster care, group home, residential treatment centers, psychiatric residential treatment facilities, and acute psychiatric hospitalization.
