Our Youth About this Guide….
This resource guide is for adolescents and their parents who seek assistance and need to know how and where to begin to look for help. This guide is meant as a starting point and should not be taken as a comprehensive guide to all services offered in Cayuga County and the surrounding areas.
We have included agencies that should be able to direct you in your search for help. Many of these agencies have numerous programs; not all programs are listed. The agencies listed can make a determination of eligibility and appropriateness for a given service and can help you with referrals.
Sometimes it is difficult to fit an adolescent’s problem with a specific category, as they may have several issues oc- curring at the same time. We have divided the guide into several different sections, but it may be helpful to read through the descriptions under all the headings and see which services might be of the most help to you.
For more information, please visit the Human Services Coali- tion’s website at www.human-services.org. A web-based copy of the Living in Cayuga County Directory can be found there. Print copies of the Directory may also be requested by contact- ing Human Services Coalition of Cayuga County at (315) 253-9743.
