The Children's Village (CV) will serve high-risk youth and their families annually in Westchester County, NY, through the provision of Multisystemic Therapy (MST) and the engagement of families in existing support programs in the community. The Children's Village will serve families with youth who are at-risk for deeper involvement in the juvenile justice system and out-of-home placement. MST draws on the strengths of the individual, the family, and the community and has been demonstrated to be one of the most cost-effective interventions for juvenile offenders. Children's Village is a Network Partner of MST Services, Inc., and is New York State's leading provider of MST. CA/NCF
