  • About

    CHWC is a child welfare agency, assisting communities within Central NY. We partner with children, families & communities to inspire hope, develop skills & cultivate relationships for positive futures.

    Tompkins Tioga Youth Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is a program designed to address the significant needs of youth ages 10 up to 21, who are at risk of entering, or returning home from high intensity services, such as inpatient settings or residential services, through the use of a multi-disciplinary team. Children and youth with significant psychiatric needs, who are at risk of institutional level of care, who require intensive interventions to adequately support the child’s and family’s complex needs, in order to avoid high end services or support a successful transition back to community, would benefit from Youth ACT.
